Comments: I received a bottle of wine as a gift a short while ago and when I opened it up it was 'Rank'. It was kept in a wine cooler. It is a 2005 Chateau Julien Cabernet S. with barcode 016299144103. I still have the bottle and contents.
Have you visited?: - no data -

This was our response!!!!

Hi Sid,

Good afternoon!

Thank you for your inquiry. Your gift giver certainly chose a lovely bottle of wine to give you as a gift. This wine has received numerous awards and accolades. I have not heard of any other complaints. Once the wine leaves the winery premises I can't guarantee how the wine will be stored. A red wine in a very cold cooler certainly can turn the wine a different color and flavor. I don't know what "rank" is, but I get the feeling it is something you don't care for very much.

Your best bet is to send a thank you note and move on. I once received a broken bracelet as a gift, but didn't have the heart to let the giver know.
