Still really youthful in 2005. Approachable but needs 3 more years to reach prime. Excellent.

More and more I believe the '99 vintage in Oregon does not live up to its hype - I much prefer the 2000s and to a lesser extent the '98s. Sandalwood flavors and aromas dominate this wine. Medium ruby red color with thick clear legs. Light mint, spice, plum, spearmint are discernable in this wine's quite complex nose. Somewhat lean on the palate, (just like most '99s) with high acidity and simple red fruit flavors. Seems more mature in the mouth despite the high acidity and foursquare flavor profile.

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.
