Denise really liked it. From memory this wine just was not worth the asking price. I had a small sip of this bottle only - impression still the same. Extremely dry, fruit seemed brighter than I remember (that's a good thing!).

I drank my last bottle on 2/19/10 and was amazed how much I liked it. The oak no longer dominates. The bouquet was terrific with strong barnyard, cherry, baking spice and burnt toast aromas. The palate was smooth, balanced and dusty dry with black cherry, plum, baking spice, mocha and toast flavors. This was an amazing improvement over the last bottle! VERY GOOD!

Light ruby in the glass, this wine has a nose of earthy raspberry aromas that continue in the body of the wine. Light, sneaky dry tannins, and good acid underlie flavors of raspberry and earth. A leathery quality emerges on the finish which is lengthy. All the right components exist here, but don't quite resolve into deliciousness as they should

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.
