Last bottle in my small collection... This wine/vintage was the first wine that ignited my passion for accumulating great tasting/affordable wines that would age well... It had to end at some time, but I am glad I got started with this wine. Not perfect, but so enjoyable...
Slight cork taint noticed on front palate. That said, wine still exhibits abundant fruit and tannins, reasonable acidity. Non-corked examples of this wine should still hold up well in your cellar for several more years.
While I don't like this particular bottle, I've still got a few left which will be evaluated in the future.
