TCA fouls 1 in 12 bottles of wine “down under”?!

[Article Link]

On a slightly related note, I had a beautiful 2000 Chateau Montelena Napa Cab last night.
Medium levels of ripe stone fruits, with nice body & length. Tannins could use a little more time & bottle bouquet was not as developed as could be – yet!
I plan on leaving my other 2 bottles down until 2007~8.
Happily, I can report that there was no TCA taint in it…
I’m looking forward to finishing it tonight with Mrs.Johnson.

Perhaps I'll use the two of them in 2008 to toast our surpassing France in wine deliciously ironic that would be!
