My favorite domestic and Argentinian producer, all these years later Paul Hobbs' wines don't miss a beat! Not to mention my favorite all time vintage 2002! Color: A velvety, ruby red core, with a tad of brick color before the outer band of rose. Nose: Black cherry, licorice, a bit of creme and dried purple flowers throw secondary aromas. Palate: Waves of black cherry, cedar notes, the purple flowers, and some round creaminess like creme d'cassis, the texture is sharing both mature and youthful traits with the latter still holding sway. Good acidity, medium-fine tannins and a long finish, this absolutely is my favorite vintage of this wine.

Dark purple with lots of fruit and alcohol. More in the style of a big shiraz than a bordeaux. Tones of toffee and tobacco with ample smooth tannins.

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.
