Tasted three times over five months, this wine is evolving beautifully. In the summer, the phenolic characteristics of the nose were somewhat dominating, masking much of what was going on elsewhere. In November of 2006, the nose is more evolved showing rich polished tannins with chocolate nougat, lavender and earth elements. On the palate, smooth black fruits, plum, fig, cherry with some hints of black olive. Nicely put together, needs time to settle down.

Decanted for about 5 hours, deep dark ruby red, gorgeous nose of big cherries, blackberries and cassis. The tannins softened as the wine aired and were well integrated and soft towards the end of the bottle, a long soft finish. A great wine.

Youthful Cab. Like a RB Bordeaux on steroids. 60% Cab, 40% Merlot. Rich, concentrated with silky smooth tanins. Black fruit, with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Not overpowered by the oak. Well Balanced. Had it at Meadowood Restuarant with the gang. Was a perfect finish to our evening.

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.
