The question is this: Should foils be removed upon receipt? Does removing a foil prior to storage adversely affect the wine either short term or long term?
Good questions I haven't seen, yet alone answered.
I'd guess the foil helps keep out oxygen, thus keeping the cork somewhat moist(or from drying out), and possibly helping with long time storage... esp in not-so-ideal conditions.

There should be one more chardonnay rat (2 reports to come) and three merlot rats... come out come out, and hurry your asses up.

I completely understand, but I'm still disappointed. I enjoyed the Rooftop Red and Skinny Dip SB from August of '07, and was looking forward to trying these. Now I know how those who live in nanny states feel.
