Note that you can use the 'Report a problem' link which appears after clicking on any individual listing to notify our content team and partner of incorrect wine matches.
Auction prices are based on actual auction results (inclusive of buyerÂ’s premiums) of 750ml bottle sizes only. As auction prices fluctuate from auction to auction and some wines have limited auction activity, the average auction price is updated twice a month and derived from a proprietary algorithm.

This was bottle after the split, but from a barrel made before the split. Mefium red. Very feminine, silky, soft, elegant, fresh ( at 45!), vibrant, complex with a really long, nice finish. Worth buying. This was tasted at an Acker Wine event on 11/4/09 hosted by Antonio Galloni. 13 wines from the 1960s were tasted in 4 flights at dinner at Alto in Manhattan. The wines were double decanted just prior to the tasting, so some of the wines may have need more time and may be rated in range.

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.
