Created by the talented foursome of Jim Knight, Sashi Moorman, Peter Hunken and Chad Melville, this wine always generates significant interest among our clients. <br><br/> This wine is so big, needs a couple hours to open. Coffee and black currant aromas. The palate is rich and serious with saturated violet and blackberry fruit. Nice acidity. Needs time.

Dense, purple ink. Nose of burnt fruit, alcohol, blackberry, some bramble, black cherry and pepper (black). A massive wine, literally bursting at the seams with juice. Lots of black fruit. Decent acidity. Hot. I know people like this wine but I find it very boring. I know syrah is a masculine grape, but Holus-Bolus is like Sylvester Stallone in a bottle.

I found this useful: Yes | No

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.
