Deep maroon color, clear, not cloudy. Very slight brownish tinge on the edge. Wine was overchilled so nose was closed at first. Some funk, barnyard and a whiff of sulfer. Blueberry, vanilla and nice rounded mouthfeel. Not complex but pleasant flavours, easy drinking, a moderately dry tannic finish. For 12 bucks I preferred this over the more serious Herzog Napa Cabernet @ $28.

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.
