I knew there was a reason I haven't been too fond of BV wines lately ... and I thought it was just me.

Hi KC. Not familiar with the article but my last experience with the 97 Rutherford and PR was very positive. Haven't had the 99s' yet. Amplify. WW

Many of their wines suffer from TCA--apparently a cellar problem and may be confined to one particular cellar where some of their high end wines are fermented. I think the article said '97 to '99 wines may have been affected. In 2000 they used a different cellar or something.

Thanks... I'll open some 97s' in the near future. WW

To their credit, the winery is trying to make good on spoiled bottles. If your '97s are damaged, check on your options.
