I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised based on some reviews I had read online. This first time I had this back in 2003 it took about 4 hours for this wine to pop and reveal its aromas and flavors. This was my last bottle and was hoping for the best. The comments were pretty dire as a dead wine. Upon opening and tasting this wine I got NOTHING. No aromas, minimal favors, and no finish. I had readied myself and was not too disappointed but I gave it another chance in a decanter before I used it to make the bordelaise sauce. I immediately decanted it and with 45 minutes it blossomed nicely and carried its weight through to the end 5 hours later. I was afraid it would not last based on how rapidly it opened up. This was a crowd favorite: delicious, mellow and holding its own. Color: Dark red core, lighter red/garnet edges Nose: Sweet oak, cherries, sweet chocolate, whiffs of aged cabernet, but less than I expected. Palate: More ripe cherries, aged herbal flavors like sage and sweet tobacco, a touch of leather, but rich oak and the cherries make this wine sing. Very mellow, smooth and polished. I may have gotten lucky so drink up!

A classic Cabernet nose of moderate strength. Beautiful dark red black color with a few slow moving thin moderately pigmented legs. Toast, black cherry, slight mint, a touch of vanilla, black olives, black currants, and paper. Silky smooth on the palate despite a little heat and some prickly tannin. The suaveness of the wine allows it to be drunk with pleasure early but the wine can age. Displays a lot of Bordeaux like nuances including slight sage and considerable black olive on the finish. Lots to like about this wine but I wish it had "more" of everything.

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.
