October 25, 2015 - Omg! Our cork crumbled as well. Seemed defective although no leakage.
Wine opened up big quickly.
A bit green on the initial nose but good bacon, tobacco and truffle palate leading to a slightly chalky high alcohol finish.
Drink now and let it evolve in the glass directly from the bottle.

February 5, 2013 - Decanted off its sediment & rebottled. Faded crimson red color with aromas of mint, black currants, leather, violets and other florals. Balanced and nicely integrated, featuring flavors of red fruit, florals and sandalwood. 92+ pts.
