RandyZin is one of my go-to wines. It's a great example of RRV zin and a consistent performer. As of this writing (late 2011), the 2009 RandyZin would benefit from another year in the bottle, but if decanted for an hour or more, it shows its potential. Classic black fruit and peppery aromas, on the palate it's vibrant and rich with mouth-filling dark berries. On the finish there's more spice and juicy black fruit (plum, black cherry) and a little dry. Unfortunately, I've drunk all my 2008s, so I'll have to dip into my 2009s... but if you can hold out, these will be brilliant bottles by this time next year.

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.
