Cork Taint, Say it Ain't So!

1989 R. Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva. A beautiful Spanish Rioja that retails for $81.
And his evil brother from 1987! Say it ain't so, say it ain't so..........the mighty 'bouchon' has stuck again. Corked! Perhaps one day, my research from France will be instrumental in solving this continuing epidemic of good wines gone bad. Till then, wrap up a ball of Saran Wrap and throw it into the bottom of your decanter. Depending on the intensity of the cork taint, decant it for 20 minutes to 2 hours. This process may salvage your next bottle before it goes down the drain.
