Enjoyable and fruit forward. While it has softened it hasn't opened or gained in complexity. It is simple and drinkable and I wonder if it will ever really mature or improve with any more time in the bottle.

Had along side of the 2001 silver oak. This wine lost out, fruit had dissipated and it was slightly dull. Oak character still present but I thought it was past prime or slightly corked

Drinking very well; still had 30% fresh american oak flavor with the SO patten soft finish. Was working great with the filet. Still had legs for a few more years.

An easy drinking Cabernet with simple and open cherry fruit aromas and flavors that are buried under a ton of American oak. Despite the prodigious amounts of oak, the wine's balance and accessibility show why this wine continues to remain a favorite for many.

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.
