Very characteristic Pauillac, well-made, but without the finish or polish to rate more than a score in the very low 90's. Still has bright fruit and lots of sweet tannins, so no rush to drink it yet if it's in the cellar, but wouldn't run out and buy some at the current retail price.

Deep purple hue with crimson rim. Smeels like beef jerkey and leather with deep fruit essence. Beautiful integration on the palate. Deep rich fruit really comes through while maintaining that old world charm. Will likely develop the earthy components a bit more over time, this wine is a solid effort. Tannins could use some age as well but they're not intruding on the quality right now. Full bodied (for Bordeaux) with a great finish that never "cheapens" out. Solid effort. Not quite as velvety as a Cal cab but considering the age, it may get there.

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.
