Earthy, fruity and fresh. Typically Monte Bello with perhaps a little less sweetness/fruit than in the best vintages. Nevertheless this doesn't disappoint and makes for a great glass. I get enough acidity and grip to think this still has a few years of life ahead so no rush but my few bottles won't last long anyhow. 50+9+9+18+8=94

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.
