Decanted for about 30 minutes out of the bottle. Tasted along the way, not really needed. Compared to the 01' Montelena Estate, this wine was lighter, more silky, and was more subtle. Hard to say I liked one better than the other, but this wine came right out of the bottle ready to be loved, and we did.

Delicious fruit, smooth and subtle spices. Decanted but still tight in first hour. Opened up nicely after.

Very good. Subtle, with hints of spice and leather. Ready to drink now.

I decanted the bottle for 1 1/2 hours, put it back in the bottle, took to my friends and opened for another 1 1/2 hours. A deep ruby red wine with a beautiful nose of huge berries, wonderful soft tannins and a long one minute plus finish. A really nice wine needs some air, drinks beautifully.

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.
