IWC 87(+?)?

Issue Issue 144

($125; 15% alcohol) Medium red-ruby. Blackberry, cassis, smoke, licorice and loam on the nose, along with a light nutty component. Dark and brooding, with a porty aspect to the black fruit, licorice and smoke flavors. Very concentrated wine but lacks real thrust and finishes with rather tough tannins. Not my style.

Issue 180

The 2006 is slightly more earthy, the tannins more pronounced, and the wine a bit smokier, without the 2005's admirable integration of the considerable tannin, but both are outstanding Cabernets, and probably the two best wines I have yet tasted from this small producer.

Drink Dates 2011-2016

Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, framed by dry, herbal tannins, but also offering a core of dense dried currant, sage, loamy earth, underbrush and tobacco. Ends with very drying tannins.

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.
