…is drinking beautifully. Don’t worry about the synthetic cork. I recently drank a 2000 Maculan Brentino with a synthetic cork and it was great.
But this should not be about synthetic corks. Rather, just a quick note that a 14 dollar wine from two vintages ago is as pure and lovely as a Syrah that you will drink at almost any price range.
Interestingly enough, the 2005 Saint Cosme CDR does have a natural cork. It is a wine that still needs some time; I think it needs another year and will drink good beyond 2010.
