Opened in June of 2010 after cellaring in perfect conditions since 2000. Massive cedar box on the nose and palette. No browning to be seen at all. Outside of the cedar wood, good fruit still to be found. Currants and cherries, with a little dustiness. Would consume this in the next couple of years before it starts going down.

Dark garnet color and a concentrated nose of cassis, roasting coffee, chocolate, violets and sandalwood. Lush with a full body and a long, fruity intense 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.
