Opened and double-decanted 2 hours prior to dinner. Aromas of currants and sweet oak; still quite primary fruit aromas after 13 years. Well-balanced, medium-bodied flavors; pleasantly surprised to the upside given the so-so vintage. Don't believe this wine gets any better than now.

A good bottle from a not-so-great vintage. This showed black cherries, Christmas spices and minerals like a good Saint-Estephe should. Showed St. Estephe typicity. Drink by 2022.

After about 4 hours in the decanter, this began to open up. It is very recognizable as Calon, but has some good sweetish red/plum fruit alongside the signature minerality, brushiness, and ample acidity. The last few bottles I opened were way too young & tannic, and the fruit was in hiding. It's a relief to see the fruit beginning to re-emerge now and make this enjoyable. In the long run, I wonder if the fruit will outlast the tannins. But that's a question for 2020 or so!

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.
