Still drinking nicely. Lot's of tobacco, earth, and leather tones with good fruit and very integrated tannins.

Easy (too easy) I would put this in a class of standard quaffing wines. Not much on the palette or finish. Would not pay the premium again for this wine. Better off with buying more bottles of 2006/2007 BV Tapesty or Hall 2008 for half the price. At least the bottle of wine wasn't corked. Save your money and put it elsewhere. Regards, Tony.

Very weak on the palette until fully opened up, which took about 2 -3 hours. Then gentle and delicate, best drunk on its own.

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.
