wine is cloudy due to transportation. Given the handicap, it showed very well. Delicious and match really well with mushroom dish.

Soaring aromatics of dried porcini mushroom, earth & spices. Full bodied- almost came across as tannic. I loved the acidity in this wine. More earthy than fruity, but it did not seem in any danger of fading even at 11 years old. The finish was more than 45 seconds. Very impressive bottle.

An intensely colored Pinot Noir, w/ heady sweet notes of kirsch liqueur, toffee, strawberry jam and rhubarb pie. While very ripe and pushing its intensity to the max, there is a tantalizing underbrush streak and decent juxtaposed acidity that keeps things in symmetry. Certainly stemmed from Zinfandel sensibilities, but harnessed enough to pull it off

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.
