This wine is drinking much better than on release-the tannins have relaxed a bit and the fruit is shining nicely. Drinking now, one might wish to decant a half hour or so.On the down side, however, 2 of the 7 bottles we have consumed from a case were found to have cork taint and that has been most disappointing.

A medium to deep red black hue with thin legs showing a bit of color. A fantastic nose of deeply concentrated cherry/berry, toasty oak, a touch of baker?s chocolate, and some espresso scents. While the wine?s aromas leave no doubt that this is a high end wine, it disappoints in the mouth. It is thinner than expected with only decent levels of fruit and high acidity. Ok length on the 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.
