TWO FUCKING WORDS.......
What does that say to any Shiraz-lover out there? A dry cork is indicative of terrible storage practices as well as terrible pricing logic.
The wine in question was a Shiraz from Argentina priced to sell at $7.99 per bottle Canadian currency. Chances are this medium-variety wine ( it is not that bad but i would not serve it to the boss if he was an oenophile?) was overpriced, did not sell so therefore the powers that be put it on reduction. Sometimes buying wines in this province on reduction is a good move but in this case, with a dry cork, not good.
Shame on the MLCC for they are philistines not worthy of marketing decent wines.
