  • In the delicious debate over which closure is best, blows are landed on a daily basis like the featured bout on a fight card. The latest haymaker came from The Huffington Post’s Eleanor Shannon, who, with the intrepid coaxing of the environment in her corner, came out swinging this past week in defense of the cork enclosure. “Cork is infinitely ...

  • You can’t deny screw caps prevent cork taint, but has the emerging closure tainted tradition?  Washington State University’s (WSU) Viticulture and Enology program seems to think not, according to an article published yesterday in The Seattle Times. “They don’t stand on snobbishness when it comes to making wine at Washington State University,” As...

    From the article Screw Caps Up the Wazoo: Washington State University Prefers Twist Over Cork

  • Wow, how unfortunate to be experiencing Corked wines. Possibly try changing where you purchase your wine?.My strong advise is to buy twist off tops. Don't be fooled into thinking that these types of closures are inferior. They are not.Remember, Chateau Lafite Rothchiled uses twist off tops and I cannot afford to buy it because it generally start... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Do I need to replace my tonuge?

  • I agree. I don't think it's your tonuge. I think your tonuge is fine. The aromas and flavors you describe sound like the result of bad corks. For some reason people refer to a wine so affected as being "corked", which is kind of silly when you think about it because a)most wines still use cork stoppers unfortunately so most wines are in fact cor...

    Forum post in the topic Do I need to replace my tonuge?

  • I think I know a decent enough about wine. But this year, not from any specific vintage or anything, but various wines, I have been getting "bad wine" I think so. Like tonight. ANd the last time. Different wines, different stores. And this has happened I guess two or three other times this year. The first couple of times I took the stuff back, b... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Do I need to replace my tonuge?

  • This past month the Department of Treasury's Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) released an advisory titled, “Advisory on Underwater Aging of Wine”, to which popular political magazine Politico responded with an article questioning the reasoning behind the advisory. “The FDA has advised us that aging wine in a way that bottle seals h...

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Agreed. The people who post to sell stuff get on my nerves. Like that idiot who revived William's pharaoh thread, which was kind of classic and has now been sullied.Lindeman - if you don't think you'll finish the bottle, don't decatnt the whole thing. just pour out half and put the rest in the fridge. Do a search for how to keep partial bottles ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Hello Snooth!

  • Lindeman,I appreciate your self-deprecating demeanor, but no, it's not laughable.  What's laughable are people who come here and try to shamelessly plug their wares and could care less about actually contributing to the discussion or helping people looking for answers or enlightenment.If it takes you more than a day to finish a bottle, then deca...

    Forum post in the topic Hello Snooth!

  • Lots of information to pour through, excuse the pun! but thank you all tons.On the topic of decanting from MW45's thread a couple questions.  I like the idea of decanting, it kind of makes sense as does the size and shape of the decanting bottle.  My question is once the wine is poured into the decanter do you keep the wine in it until it's fini...
