Mature Napa Cabernet, in a good drinking window now, with just about the right balance of primary and secondary characteristics, and smooth integrated tannins.

Good, solid bottle of cab. Not sure when I had the last one of these, but I seem to remember it being better. A little on the delicate side. Some dried fruit mixed with Cinnamon seemed to be the order of the day. Last bottle of these in the cellar. Sorry to see them go, but not sure I'd wait too much longer before finishing these up. This bottle would have only gone another year or two, and I suspect it would be dropping off quickly over this period of time.

Very good, as usual, not at par as last bottle tasted. Very CA cabernet classic, lot of ripe fruit, black currant, redberry, spicy and toasty vanilla and mineral. It falls a litlle short on finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
