Issue Issue 132

($240) Ruby-red. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of currant, rocks, tobacco and chocolate. Very ripe, lush, broad and sweet, if a bit youthfully sullen. This has very good life for the year if not quite the definition of the 2005. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins.

Drink Dates 2014-2034

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Eden, which comes from a valley floor vineyard in Oakville, is another dead ringer for a great Pauillac, possibly a young Mouton. Dense bluish/purple in color with stunning notes of cedarwood, unsmoked high-quality cigar tobacco, creme de cassis and espresso roast, this wine has fabulous fruit, density and a full-bodied, youthful mouthfeel, wonderful balance and purity, and a terrific finish that goes on for close to a minute. This is also relatively open, but slightly more structured than the Melbury. There's no sense deferring gratification, so I would suggest drinking it over the next 15-20 years, possibly longer.

Drink Dates 2009-2015

Superripe yet supple and balanced, with deep, enticing blackberry, ripe plum and wild berry fruit that's rich and concentrated, with a long, persistent finish. The tannins are firm and structured.

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.
