Dark red with little rim variation. Absolutely no sign of oxidation! Hints of cherry, berry, dried fruits and leather on the nose. Medium bodied, smooth texture, with a long finish. Greatly reduced tannins, but they are still there along with acid notes for a silky and velvety finish. I agree with others--this wine is still drinking well. It has great fruit given its age, and may still have another couple of years left. A classic Bordeaux.

Unbelievably good, strong leather upon open that wafted into soft, velvety texture

Still drinking very well now. Medium-to-full body, with earthy and red berries nose. Very good finish.

This bottle was flawed

I served my second bottle of this with duck risotto at a dinner party on 10/26/08. It had, unfortunately, turned bad. It was a little vinegary and lost most of its aroma and flavor. I consider this bottle flawed and will not rate it.

Drank it at Olivetto with the Bermans. Quite a nice bottle for the money. Great balance, with acidity and sofness, and unmistakable old bordeaux mustiness. Great classy food wine with a nice price point.

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.
