Crimson in color. Low rim variation. Slow legs. Nose of strawberry (?) and a light hint of smoke. Blackberry and light toast on the first taste followed by black currant (cassis). Light/Medium bodied. Silky texture. Short finish.

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.
