This will be good in time but it's still too tannic and astringent right now. Once it opened, this was a bit more balanced. I think 3-5 more years in the cellar will do wonders for this. Plush round fruit and spice means this has the structure and heft to age. Right now, this is an 88ish. I think with age it wil be in the low 90s; just needs to mellow a bit. Scoring it a 90 right now.

Really good. Deeply rich mixture of dark cherry, cassis, toast, vanilla, and and forest floor.

Nice boquet, full bodied thick on the tongue. Dark fruit taste with a sharp tannin ending. 30+ second finish. Definite cellar sleeper in 10 years....

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.
