After a 3 hour decant: Raspberry, pepper, lead pencil, anise. Moderately long finish. Medium weight. Balanced with tannins that are a little drying on the finish. Parker gives this a 97 and says it will continue to age well. I'm not so sure, but did enjoy it plenty this's

2005: Still so remarkably primary, with a bit of sweetness floating in there amid lots of dusty black fruit. Spice cookie and energetic mineral on the palate.

Rich, took a while to open up but worth the wait. Balanced, stately.

Double decant, ~5hrs open. Nose minimal at first but gets better with air. Not much on palate, tannic finish but long and pleasant.

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.
