Definitely in prime drinking shape. Given no decant time due the nature of this dinner auction event, the wine performed incredibly well. Luscious dark fruit aromas, velvety mouth feel, and a long finish. A real crowd pleaser.

I did not take formal notes, but JH did and I typed them out: "Deep dark rich color. On the nose concentrated dark black cherry, plum, blackcurrant, and raspberry fruit, followed roses, chocolate, spices, and spanish cedar with a hint of menthol. The palate is brawny but elegant and polished, full and complex with rich concentrated flavors and nice balance. The finish is generously long, rich, and complex. This wine can be enjoyed now, or will age well and improve for years." He was at 98, I was at 96. Regardless, great wine especially for a CaliBordeaux in the $100 range

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.
