Provenance, provenance, provenance!
I wouldn't put much stake into that last CT comment... he mentions buying on WineBid. While a great site, it always means questionable provenance. The dried cork probably meant that the seller didn't store the bottle properly.
I have two accounts- this 'anonymous' username for commenting, as well as a 'purchasing' account which is my real name. Apologies for the white box on the left.
Also, in the interest of full disclosure- I'm ITB, selling wine for a living. None of my wines have ever been featured on Woot though, so don't fear the shilling.

Come back please Peter. I am waiting to hear what the result is before pushing the button. It is hard for me to buy wine for 2 reasons right now.
1. Wine festival is in 4 days.
2. super hot days have arrive early in the high desert.
However it is hard to pass on your wine, not to mention a Syrah.
