G60: nosing of wet wood. Corked, even to my TCA-insensitive nose.

Wow. I've been really disapointed by Graham's lately (thinking of recent experiences with the '77 in particular). People said this wine was corked, and I surely hope for the wine's sake that it was the case. Aspects of it seemed consistent with other (flawed?) bottles of Graham's I've had. Not good.

Flawed?

Corked - and quite badly. Sadly this did not show up when the wine was first decanted. NR.

My note simply says: "Corked"
