Low US Retail is updated twice a month and excludes outlier listings. Detailed listings are sourced daily from our partner, Global Wine Stocks, and may include outliers. Note that you can use the 'Report a problem' link which appears after clicking on any individual listing to notify our content team and partner of incorrect wine matches.
Auction prices are based on actual auction results (inclusive of buyerÂ’s premiums) of 750ml bottle sizes only. As auction prices fluctuate from auction to auction and some wines have limited auction activity, the average auction price is updated twice a month and derived from a proprietary algorithm.

Browning, the concentration of colour suggesting a darker brown than it perhaps is (c.f. the 1999). The nose of raisins, honey, and musk manages to seem fresher than the 1998 or 1999. On the palate the freshness is evident (though nothing like the burst of the 2007, of course) showing what perfectly mature Aria is all about. The weightiest of the 4 wines, there is a faint oiliness to the texture which is very appealing. The wine remains balanced between sweet front and clean back, a hint of fruit, but mostly bottle-age flavours dominate. Drink now.

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.
