Issue Issue 150

($72) Vivid ruby. An intensely floral bouquet displays wilted rose, magnolia, black raspberry and incense.

The finish repeats the red fruit note and lingers with very good tangy persistence. I'll bet that this will be even better in a year or two.

Cherry, blackberry, plum, mocha dust, allspice, and a touch of smoke, all combine to make this a very nice pinot. A slighty bitter finish prevents a higher score.

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.
