The worst wine I ever had that wasn't corked, cooked or otherwise afflicted was a cheap Bulgarian Merlot. Need I say more?
My dogs like me, that is important.

Well, bum wine excluded here...
It was an eight dollar bottle of 2010 Merlot I got on sale from a Dierbergs just a couple weeks ago. It was not spoiled, but it did taste awful and turned to pure vinegar in less than 3 days (properly re-corked in the refrigerator).
I think I bought a white wine from the same rack. Oh gods, which one was it?...

My dad is a loan officer in central Illinois dealing with farm loans. He talks to a lot of farmers, and some of them make their own wine. He often avails them of a few bottles if they are offering. He has a penchant for Vignoles and Vidal Blanc, and once I get past the cloying sweetness, many of them are decent. However, he once opened up a bottle of "Foch" (which I understand now is the Marechal Foch varietal) and it was just terrible, even after too many bottles of something else. We took some orthographic liberties and renamed it… well, you can guess and I can't write it anyway!

I still think we should all be reimbursed for that floor polish.
That wasn't the worst bottle to come out of wine.woot.
There was an earlier offering where, when the bottles were delivered and opened, complaints started coming in that it tasted off, watery, and just plain strange. Turns out they forgot to turn off the bottling line when they flushed out the system, and the result got shipped out to wine.woot. I think the bottles I got from that offering were just fine.
I've already talked about the worst I've personally had in the other thread, but suffice to say it smelled strongly like freshly laid asphalt. And the wine steward had the balls to claim it was natural and normal.

Ménage à Trois Moscato in a blind taste. Spit it right out. I have poured out corked bottle worse than that junk.
