I doubt that it was cooked or corked, we ordered if from the Kittle House which has a great reputation for wine, that is not to say that they have never had a corked wine...
Mareff, I find that a curious comment. There is nothing a restaurant, retail store or you or I could ever do to cork
You are right, I'm positive
they have poured 1000's of corked wines... between 5% - 10% just like every other place in the world.
If I had to guess, I would say the wine was past peak, or poor provenance.
Try the '89 if you have the chance.
