I am basing my overall score on day 3 after being open but preserved. At the onset, this was the most curious tasting cabernet I have ever consumed. If you had put a bag over it and asked me to guess its origin, I would have said Italy. Its taste is more akin to a brunello or a Chiante Riserva. Very closed at the beginning and opened up and improved dramatically throughout the evening. My initial thought was this wine was either horrible or horribly young. 85pts out of the bottle. On Day 3, I poured a glass and oh what a difference. This is clearly a wine that needs to be open for a while before consumption. It was beautifully elegant and balanced. It now tasted like a California cab of a high caliber.

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.
