($60; a blend of 40% carinena, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 10% garnacha and 5% syrah) Ruby-red. Explosively ripe aromas of plum, currant, spicecake, cedar, minerals and violet. Sweet, lush and pliant on entry, then tighter and penetrating in the middle and firmly tannic on the back. There's creamy black fruit flavor and very good volume here but the wine is distinctly clenched today owing to its strong acidity. I'd lay this down for a couple of years. (Fine Estates From Spain, Dedham, MA)

Drink Dates 2005-2011

The concentrated, blueberry-scented and flavored 2002 Idus is a blend of 40% old vine Carignan, 20% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the remainder tiny quantities of Syrah and Grenache. Clean, crisp notes of toasty new oak, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, and black currants are followed by a classy, racy, mid-level Bordeaux-like wine with both elegance and flavor authority. Already approachable, it is best drunk over the next 5-6 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.
