It was time to drink with perhaps another 2 to 5 years left.

I was shocked at how mature this wine was and what character had evolved through its few years of bottle aging. A dead ringer for a Left Bank Bordeaux (perhaps a Graves), this 7 year old Rhone evoked notions of cigar box, sweet tobacco, new saddle leather, cinnamon spice, black currant and loam. Uncommonly restrained and elegant in the palate, pumping waves of medium bodied, satin-textured fruit speckled with copious amounts of pepper and truffle to the finish. Understated and enshrouded in subtlety that belies the vintage and the wine?s age, a sure fire bet for a mature claret lover

Great wine that needed about an hour and a half to fully develop in the glass. Rich nose at first of raspberry and bacon fat, with smokey notes. All of which with time gave way to soft layered spices. Great wine. 4/5

Medium dusky violet colored wine with a few distinct clear legs. With airing, the wine gives up light aromas of spice and red fruits. Sweet spicy yet indistinct fruit on the palate with well-balanced crisp acidity. The wine finishes short with light to moderate tannins.

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.
