  • Heitz Grignolino 2000

    Snoothrank:

    This was given to me by my brother-in-law who found it in an estate. I have no reason to believe that this wine was stored in anything like preferred conditions. However, the bottle looked great and the fill looked good. The cork crumbled when I pulled it. So, that was not a good sign. However, the color in the glass was good--red plum with... Read More

  • TCA. Three separate bottles on separate occasions. First was irritating, the second I planned to take back, and the third made me finally write to them. He said that they changed cork suppliers as a result of that year. Like I said, he offered to make it good, and when I thought about it I figured they're small and I didn't want to make a big de...

  • I am assuming Brett, but sometimes the cork simply disintegrates and causes annoying but less damaging problems.  I hate cork, and American wineries often complain that any cork sourced from France or Portugal (and a few other locations) is the bottom of the cork oak barrel; that is, the best cork for closure goes to European producers.  That so...

  • We need to try those DV!!Tonitght it's Skylark 2013 Grenache, Mendocino County. Lots of cork problems and I wrote to them about it. They acknowledged the issue and said they had a problem in 2013 and dumped their cork supplier. They also offered to make the wines good, but they're not big producers and I wasn't going to push it, although I appre... Read More

  • Grand Vin de Chateau Latour 1974

    Snoothrank:

    Gift from an exceptional friend. Just dumbfounded. Never had a wine from a first growth French Vineyard before. Uncorked the bottle at my eldest granddaughters first communion party in Texas. After 44 years the cork had almost bled through and it broke upon opening. I decanted it and aerated it. Almost no sediment in the bottle. The wine was an... Read More

  • Over the years I have posted here on Snooth about wines that my brother-in-law has found in the course of his business of the disposition of estates.  Last weekend he gave me a stash that looked like it might have some potential.  The first three that I opened did not really make the grade.1995 Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend-- knew this one was...

  • This Topic is partially intended to start a new thread on daily wine drinking as the earlier topics are just too long and too general.  How about telling us more about your choices and helping me start a new thread for the next generation, so to speak?  The "why" is the interesting part for some of us - but pictures are always welcome; after all...
