($150) Dark ruby-red. Ripe aromas of currant, sassafras, bitter chocolate, cured meat and menthol. At once sweet and green in the mouth. The dark fruit and earthy flavors are given a dry edge by the wine's strong menthol and herbal elements. And yet this concentrated, extremely backward wine has a distinct roundness and sweetness in the middle. Finishes quite dry and persistent, in need of at least five or six years of aging.

The estate's flagship wine, the medium-bodied 2001 Cask 23 exhibits notions of berry fruit intermixed with spice, coffee beans, herbs, and a touch of the cow dung component. While the attack is attractive, the wine narrows out and concludes with an angular, uninteresting finish. It actually performs less well than its two siblings, which is hard to understand. It will age for 10-15 years, but this 2001 in no way recalls the great Cask 23's of the seventies and early to mid-eighties. What a shame!

Good 'ok Cask 23, old school in style, best bottle yet and this easily has another 10 years left. SLWC did not follow the fruit bomb route most in Napa did and now I am rewarded for that. If you have any pop it now as its in a great place. Barely showing age at the rim this has a med-deep red core. The nose is mostly mature with fall leaves, cigar box, roasted herbs, but the fruit is youthful with bing cherry and luscious currants. The palate is classic Stag's Leap with silky and a tad dusty medium+ tannins. The fruit is persistent and the finish is long and fresh. Awesome finale for me on this wine (for 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.
