crumbly cork. i've had it stored on it's side since i purchased it in Aug '07. there was no leakage and the wine was good, just the bottom half of the cork broke off and deteriorated into the bottle. other review state bad cork issues as well.
Opened about 45 minutes before drinking. Shy nose. Plenty of blueberry on the palate, but a somewhat disappointing lack of pepper. Medium body and a decent finish. Explosive fruit on the palate, but still reasonably well balanced. If anything, the tannins dominated the fruit, which suggests that it should improve over the course of the next year or two. Not much complexity, but, given the price, I hadn't expected much. Good value.
