I thought this looked potentially exciting. However, right upon opening, the cork alerted me that something was likely amiss. It was wet about half the way up, and its smell was quite oxidized. A small taste confirmed that my bottle, at least, was pretty much sherry. I will be taking it back. Did anyone get a good bottle of this?
