Reply to "Rubber corks"

It seems that rubber corks are becoming less commonly used. They're usually used on wines meant for early consumption, and it makes better sense, in my opinion, to use a screw cap on those rather than a corkscrew-busting rubber stopper.

I'm optimistic that the cork industry will clean up its act at the producer and processing level to reduce the rate of cork taint so that consumers can have better confidence in cork closures in the future for age-worthy wines.

Alternatively, if anyone can definitively prove that wines age well under screw cap, that would be even more ideal.
