Oh yeah, this stuff is excellent. Given to me from a friend, it showed excellent fruit and great creme de cassis intertwined with tannins that pop. Definitely has another 10-15 years in it. Finish is long and tasty. An engaging wine.

Great color and potentially an excellant 2000 Bordeaux but the wine needs time. Save waht you have for five years and then taste again!

Retail purchase about 1.5 years ago. Decanted 45 minutes. Dark blue, slightly watery rim. Pepper and mint, forest and earth. Young and taut. Brambly and austere. Less fruit, more concentration. Quite distinct in the line-up of other Cabernet-based wines (granted this is 35% Cab Sauv, 35% Cab Franc 30% Merlot). The over-riding pepper nose and taste is a surprise. Very long, lingers and the pepper dissipates. Second day is a little mellower, but still concentrated. I prefer the magnificent 2001 to this bottle at this point. Let's see again in a few years.

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.
