Drinking beautifully. Vanilla oak nuances quite prominent. Tannins softened with bright cherry/blackberry fruit shining through.

This latest bottle was just really good after a couple great bottles of the same vintage. Will not disappoint. Big fruit, long finish.

Needs time to open up. After an hour it started to show good balance. A bit to much oak in the begining.

A bit tannic, but good color, texture, fruit, and purity. My score=89.

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.
