Issue Issue 126

($60) Bright red-ruby. Aromas of currant, chocolate, graphite, cedar and menthol, with a powerful overlay of pungent American oak. Round, ripe and surprisingly creamy and generous in the mouth, with fruit-driven flavors of currant, graphite and chocolate. Finishes with substantial, building oak tannins that manage to avoid coming off as dry.

Good but not great. Had some oak going on with not much in the way of tannins. Smooth wine

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.
