Bottle blues: Why does the wine taste worse at home?
Q: When I've purchased wine lately at either a grocery store, or even a wine shop for that matter, it seems as though some of the wines have a sour taste to them. We can have wine in a restaurant and then purchase the same wine in a store and it doesn't taste the same. I know I'm purchasing the same wine because I'll write down the one we liked and look for it in the store. It's happened not only with moderately priced wines, but more expensive bottles as well. Is this because the wine is not shipped or stored correctly? It's so frustrating, especially if I've spent a good amount on the bottle.
