First I will say this was by far the most sediment I have ever seen in a wine bottle. I think the bottom 1/4 was undrinkable being so cloudy. That said it was also by far the finest Cabernet Franc based wine I have ever tasted. It was dark & full bodied with the typical earthiness from the Cab Franc yet it was lively & not overly tannic. Complex with very nice dark fruit flavors. Surprisingly young tasting given it's age. It was full bodied and elegant at the same time.

Still concentrated and youthful. Was not sure how it would last, but clearly has many years to go. Dark purple, light chocolate, slight burnt rubber, smooth tannin and long 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.
