After decanting for about an hour, this big cab drank very well. The tannins in this wine were velvelty smooth, and I wished I had another bottle. Good fruit and a lingering finish. Does its pedegree justice.

Deep ruby red, interesting nose of berries and spices with a wonderful long lingering finish for 90 to 120 sec. Really nice wine, have had 6 others over five years getting better with age

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.
