Paid $29.99 at PA wine and spirits. When I cut off the foil I noticed the cork had some kind of residue and a stain on top. When I opened the whole cork was stained purple, thought for a second it may have been a bad bottle. Decanted for 1/2 hour and did not notice any funky smell. It actually opened up right away. Probably did not need to be decanted. I really enjoyed this wine and I wish I bought more since it was a good price.
