Youthful in appearance, opaque, ruby red with no signs of browning and very little core to rim variation. The nose is a mix of primary and tertiary characteristics, cassis, prune, dried roses, extremely perfumed, dried herbs, tobacco, forest floor. The palate is super complex, layer upon of layers of flavor. Dark berry fruit, cassis, blackberries and blueberries, velvety in texture, the fruit is sweet and super refined, silky smooth tannin and in complete balance with the acidity. The flavors linger for what seem like forever! I have never come across a wine that delivers such finesse and grace. Absolutely Spectacular.

colour: mature with a garnet core nose: mature claret. red berries. dust. a little frayed at the edges. taste: red fruits and a little dusty. this tasted like it had a final burst of red fruit and then faded a little. this is just past its peak and should be drunk now and over the next 4-5 years. It is however a fine old claret and is still enjoyable.

Very Nice: Bouquet of roses and cassis. Medium bodied ripe red fruit and sweet tannins on the palate. Medium finish. This is drinking at its peak.

Drinking great right now with plent of life left on it. Complex wine with notes of cherries, musk, cedar, and tobacco. Light tannins and a meduim/short finnish. Awesome wine. Want more!

Vibrant deep ruby red. Delicate, yet sophisticated nose. Summer flowers and roses reveal sweet young black fruits. Under this is a hint of something dark, leathery and mineralic. Lovely balanced silky texture, lively acidity and smooth supple tannins. This is a youthful but elegant tasting cabernet. Woody cedar and sweet blackcurrant on the palate; a hint of violets towards the back. This is a stylish wine.

Dark ruby red in color with a nose of light berries, flowers and oak. I probably should have decanted this one much longer - it fell kind of short on the palate and in the finish.

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.
