Dark nearly opaque red with moderately colored thick legs. A modern styled nose that shows more Nebbiolo fragrances than is typical in this blend but mainly what one gets is smoke and new French oak ? the wine was raised in 100% new French oak.. Lots of thick hard tannins to go with more oak, smoke and some red fruits. This wine needs time ? not pleasurable to drink at present.

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.
