I wasn't sure what I would find when opening this wine ' surprisingly awesome! This is one of our oldest bottles at this point... The color is still a deep red with a fair amount of bricking on the edges. You can definitely tell it's getting some age on itâ?¦ A big blast of hot tar hits your nose initially. Layered underneath that is spicy pepper, anise, and toasted apple. The tar blew off for the most part within 10 minutes and left the spice and fruit, which was great. The mouth was balanced and full ' really elegant overall. A good amount of leather and cranberry still presentâ?¦ I love wines that have a good balance of earth and fruit! As Brian and I picked all the grapes that went into this barrel of wine ' I believe I'm being pretty objective about it. It's aged well overall, although I think it may only have another couple years total. It's definitely on its plateau now. People that got this wine got a great deal and I'm sure enjoyed it. I'll compare notes to another bottle within 6 months or so, but I say - Drink 'em if you got 'em!

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.
