Wine Review: This dark ruby wine has a nice light bouquet that is a bit earthy. On the palate, this wine is quite tasty, smooth, and a touch acidic. The wine is nicely flavored and would be a good match for steak. The finish is slightly extended and a touch dry. This wine is to be consumed soon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
