. . . corked wine
Some corks look strange or have strange things growing on them and it doesn’t affect the wine. This one, however, was unbelievably strong and a good (or horrible) example of TCA (the technical acronym for 2,4,6-Trichloroanisole or cork taint).
I won’t mention the winemaker since I don’t want to taint them for something out of their control.
