So we had a bottle of 2016 Don Melchor ($80 at Costco but $95 at Total Wine) and 2015 Realm Cellars The Bard on Christmas Eve. Both were excellent.

Last night my wife and I met my cousin and her husband, who are in from out of town, for dinner. I brought a bottle of 2012 Caymus Special Selection. I never noticed until the foil was removed but the cork was leaking. Fortunately, the wine was fine (great actually). But Iím a little gun shy with Caymus now. Our only other bottle that has ever had a cork problem was a 2013 Caymus Special Selection (which Caymus replaced at no charge). We have some more 2013-2015 that we may accelerate drinking, which is a shame because I wanted to hang onto them longer term. (Wines are stores in a fridge at a consistent 55-56 degrees and 70-80% humidity.)
