Corked!

Well it had to happen sooner or later, but it couldn't have come at a worse time. I was REALLY in the mood for a little wine with dinner and as soon as I opened it I caught a strong whiff. There was no mistaking it. I've finally been C-O-R-K-E-D! I feel violated... I can't remember the last time it's happened to me. I'm too tired to go out and exchange the bottle so I guess I'll wait until tomorrow... I'll let you know the outcome. Two days later returned bottle without problem.

Notes of granpa's basement with subtle hints of wet newspaper wonderfully stripped of all character. Ah yes. Pairs well with...,with...NOTHING! I am sorry man ain't nothin' worse.

These things happen. But Dave, didn't you have a backup bottle? Even if you don't have a large wine fridge, you can get one of those small 16 bottle wine fridge's to store some back-up wine.

Sorry to hear about it, but congrats on popping your corked-cherry ;)
