tight and tannic; should have decanted it to let the fruit come out. Some hints of tobacco and leather. Not as good as I remember

A wonderful fruit bomb. What is may lack in subtlety it makes up for in our and simple deliciousness.

Very dark red wine. Herbal aroma with a hint of citrus. Current flavor with a hint of cherry and chocolate. Slightly sweet finish. Tasted with 2001 which was still very fresh so I think this wine will age well - at least 2012.

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.
