Recently got my quarterly shipment from Columbia Crest. Looking through the wine fridge earlier, I noticed some minor 'oozing' from the top of the 2014 Cab. I took the foil off to be sure it wasn't just some wine that'd dripped onto the foil. Sure enough, a little wine on top of the cork. Pics below. The wine is harsh. But in a way that I'd say it just isn't close to being ready for consumption. Not sure that the cork has caused any issues. I'd planned to let this sit for a couple years, but opened it after I saw the cork. Should I complain? Suck it up?
