The nose is vital black raspberry, graphite, peppercorn, violet and white chocolate. The palate has firm raspberry, cherry and slate with chocolate under notes. A brilliant debut.

Not at it's best tonight but still showing well. Color: Showing some maturity as the core has gone from dark to more purple, with purple to mostly red edges. Nose & Palate: The nose is all raspberry, strawberry, spice, Kirsch even, which is maybe why I sense a touch of heat, somewhat more noticeable since my last bottle of 2006. The palate is still well balanced, the fruit is racier, elegant but with a persistence and depth cardinal of a good wine. Firm, medium grained tannins and juicy acidity close out the experience.

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.
