At a company dinner, the second bottle of 2010 Catena Malbec. Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention and the server didn't offer to have me taste the wine first. Of four bottles that night, this was the only one she didn't. As I was drinking something else, it wasn't until others said the cab I had ordered was much better than the Malbec and someone commented it might be corked. I didn't even have to guess as a newly poured glass got close and I could smell it from a foot away!

Friday night - '05 Arcadian Syrah Westerly Vineyard. Probably the most corky-smelling corked wine I've ever had...tons of wet cardboard and funk...not good.

Have you had others from the same batch? I recently bought 4 of the '06, I've not had one before.

Darn! I took this wine to D.C. for an off-line and it was also corked.

When not flawed, one heck of a great wine. Good luck with your final bottle, Clrv.

2009 Valdicava rosso di Montalcino

At a restaurant in Santa Monica, 1st and 3rd bottles were very nice. 2nd was corked pretty good.

Had 3-4 others purchased all together - this was the first one w/any flaws.

Bummer of a 1000th post, AML. But I think you guys have had a pretty good run, no?

Looking forward to notes from the rest of the evening.

In the end, it worked out fine -- Dave had two backups standing that fit the bill:

1989 Cheval Blanc
2001 Chateau Rayas

Cool

Left my notebook at Dave's but I'll get some notes up soon.

And damn...what a shitty way to reach the big 1000...

2003 Brancaia Ilatraia

At a WS offline of course. Deemed corked during double decant, so backup Super Tuscan opened. The backup bottle may have shown a hint of taint, but we decided as a group it was drinkable. Disappointing.

+1 on both of VinT's comments. Those were nice backups. Looking forward to your notes.

This thread is too depressing to even read. Fini for me.

2003 donjon

I'm not sure I really can detect when a wine is corked or not. But this was flat with a little bit of yuck. Does that count?
