Bough a couple bottles of this locally on sale a few years ago and was not overwhelmed by first bottle. Either it evolved or I evolved because this bottle was fantastic! Full bodied, complex layers, intense dark fruit along with peppery spice, tobacco, leather and earthy components. Plushy tannins. Although I liked the intensity with a pop and pour, a decant would have been best. 14.1% alcohol is nice and mellow. The 5% Petite Verdot is great in this bottle (92% cab, 3% malbec as well). For the $25 I paid, I got 2 or 3 times more. Think I hit it at a peak moment but could easily have a couple more good years. Love mountain fruit. Wish I had a few more bottles.

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.
