This wine needs air time before drinking. Very sour at first. Second day much better.

Dark garnet in color. Plum, black pepper. Taste: round dark fruit for a first impression just before being attacked by a wave of mouth drying tannins. This needs some time and/or decanting in my opinion to soften up through the mid palate and finish or you better be drinking it with food. Great acidity. May throw a few in the cellar to see what comes of it.

Dark and cloudy, this wine started with a pleasing nose of cherry, basil, black fruit, and clove, but the palette did not follow through with enough flavor. It tasted of sour cherries with a short finish, and did not have enough fruit to balance with the dry tannins or tart acidity.

Decent - a little bit of cinnamon on the nose - smooth, but also a little weak on the palate.

A little disappointed with this wine. Very flat with a little strawberry fruit, but no pepper or acid to follow the fruit.

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.
