Andrew Will Two Blondes Vineyard 2007 Red Wine

Andrew Will Two Blondes Vineyard 2007 Red Wine, $50.99-$69.99, 0 points, was, after waiting six years to drink, spoiled. I hate it when that happens.
I'm wondering if a Groth 60mm cork could have saved the day; we don't see too many twist-offs on fifty dollar wines.
I must admit, it p!$$e$ me off!
I don't now care that it had 14.4% alcohol, or what color it was.
I don't care what varietals this wine had (40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, and 7% Malbec).
Anyone think that the store I bought this wine six years ago will give a . . .?

  1. So this was a screw cap? Can't blame the spoilage on TCA then. What was the spoilage problem? Or was it just dead - no fruit, etc.?

    1. VG: So sorry I didn't word this better. Certainly it had a cork, and certainly was TCA tainted. I thought my comment: "don't see too many twist-offs on fifty dollar wines." was self-explanatory, but I see the vagueness.

  2. Remember, Plumpjack was the first 'premium' winery to put a screw-cap on their Oakville CS - and they charged $10 extra for the privilege. Genius marketing!
    And remember, TCA is the fault of the cork, not the winery.

    1. VG: TCA from improperly maintained barrels?

  3. Could be, but predominantly transferred through cork (2,4,6-trichloroanisole).
