I just opened a 2013 bottle of Black Mountain Zinfandel that I've had in my wine cellar for a few years. It was sealed with an agglomerated cork which I found unusual. In my experience, commercial wineries generally use good quality corks.

I cant help but wonder, 'why risk a winery's reputation on cheap corks?'. Fortunately, with this bottle, there was no leakage after 5 years of storage.
