The nose on this is intoxicating. Rich dark fruit, a bit of meatiness...very aromatic. At this point in its life, the palate doesn't quite live up to the nose, but shows obvious promise for the future. Nicely balanced fruit, tame tannins, but with an acidity that gets in the way for me for current drinking. That said, I'm confident that this will integrate over the coming years. This is a serious wine that one day will be great. As an earlier taster said, this is not a fruit bomb. It's a complex wine that begs for more time in the cellar. My last bottle will be hidden deep in the cellar, not to be found before 2015!

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.
