I'm just trying to figure out what's going on for everyone's benefit.
Follow up: If you go to the 12/27/2010 prior offer link, you can see the CT reviews.
CS: 2 good review, 7 bad. Comments: down the drain, bad wine, musty nose, not a good wine, from an otherwise disastrous mixed case from WW.
Malbec: only one positive review. Comments: corked, smells like feet, burnt faded color, tasted weird, brown edges, flawed, flawed, flawed.
Zin: mixed reviews, either good or bad. Comments: overall effect was flat, mixed case has not been consistent at all, over the hill, on its way down, if this wine had a prime it's past it.
Merlot: Comments: third Sunce down the drain, murky and sloppy, don't know what's going on with my first case of Sunce, but it'll be the last.
Syrah: mid 80's. Comments: musty wet cardboard, another flawed bottle.
So, I don't know what happened, but I think there was more to this case than it not being to my liking. I think I got a case of bad wine and so did quite a few other reviewers.
