Big Big Big- this is a merlot with weight and punch. A nose of violets, cedar, and blackberries. Solid mid palate with great balance and tannin. It was young but I put it through a vinturi and it came to life in the glass. Normally I wait till the second night but I couldn't wait. The finish was nicely complex bringing some caramel and wet stone. Nicely done

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.
