Bought on release. Beautiful evocative nose on opening, deeply colored, heavy in the glass. A lush mouthfeel is driven more by the density and glycerin of the wine, as the fruit is pretty, if just a touch lean (especially when compared to the fruit driven vintages in 2003, 2005, 2009), which gives the wine a nice tension, and interesting complexity from leather, spice and minerality. Very good length. Some excellent values in 2002, keep them around!

The nose explodes from the decanter with floral notes, cassis, stone and black fruit. The color is garnet with hints of a more mature rust. Pallate was very tight upon first tasting, but after an hour, she softened up and revealed her true lush personality. It was clear that it was still early in the bottle cycle of this wine and I look forward to tasting the other bottles in the years to come.

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.
