Corked Wine in a Screwtop?

It’s official folks. I finally got a ‘corked’ (i.e. contaminated with either TCA or TBA, ) bottle of wine under a screwtop.

I thought I was hallucinating. I left the bottle on the counter and tried it again this morning when my buds were freshest. Still tainted. Wife didn’t like it either. I called the wine rep, who was in town with her supervisor and had them come by and taste it: same result.

I always knew it was theoretically possible but this does tend to kneecap folks who think screwtops will Save the World from Cork Taint!
