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.
