2003 "Arcs" (Terra Alta, Spain)
This is the second flawed bottle I've had of this wine, which was rated pretty highly by Robert Parker. Both bottles were marred by excessive volatile acidity and an acetate aroma, which got worse as the wine sat. Although it's cheap (about $6 at Specs), and obviously ripe and concentrated, it's not drinkable. 60. Yuk.
