Producer Notes

Seemed a little closed when first opened, but was amply rewarded 30 minutes later with gorgeous asphalt and charcoal scents and a mouthful of luscious blackberry flavors. The black/blue tinted wine continued to improve as the meal progressed with espresso and black pepper notes becoming more prominent. Still a young wine not yet at its peak. Glad I still have a few more in the cellar.

Smoke, olive and sweet black fruit on the nose. Cherry. Meaty tones. Upon opening, better poised and far less over the top than I had expected, but a thin, alcoholic, acidic mess on day two. Really fell horribly apart overnight.

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.
