Drink Dates 2007-2012

I bought this wine in Brooklyn and carried it with me to San Francisco. Whatever the journey did to its aging curve, I have no complaints. Smelled like damp earth, gobs of black fruit and some brett. Tasted of earth and blackberry, with cocoa, tree sap, nutmeg, cherry and vanilla. Blindfold me and this is a Bordeaux. Far bigger than most wines I tend to drink and could probably use a little more acidity, but this wine is really complex. Over time, developed sirloin juices and tea notes. Maybe the best malbec I have ever had. Drink now if you haven't already because I can't see it getting a whole lot better.

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.
