Half size bottle, drinking very nicely. Full integration. At least 20-25 second finish. Let aerate for 30 minutes.

Great nose of pencil shavings, cedar, minerals, dark druit smells. choco and tobacco. Blackish crimson color, ever so slightly browning at rim. Medium body with dense extracted dark druit flavors. Very bordeaux in the nose, but sweet like Cal cab. Little hot on the finish. I think this will continue to improve b/c the fruit is completely there, and tannins are still evident. I'd guess this will peak around 2023, but I think will be very interesting to try in 2018. My score allows for continued improvement with age.

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.
