Fruit/Oak balance with mid tannins. This was probably the best Alex. Valley Silver Oak I've tasted.

Deep rich color. Tannic structure holding well and likely to hold for another 5 years. Fruit is still holding up nicely also.

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.
