    it isn't really just opinion.

    he went on to say the he isn't the biggest fan of synthetic enclosures and uses wax on some of his higher-end, more expensive stuff because the synthetic enclosures also allow for taint due to reduced oxygen.

    none of this explains the issue of safety upon import/export though.

    i think it's pretty safe to say the many new world wines and "drink now" type vino are perfectly acceptable from a screw cap... hell some of the finest and most expensive Sake in the world comes like a bottle of San Pellegrino

    My father in law gave me a 100 plus bottle of soju that comes just like that.

    Tried the Xs Cabernet. My opinion: average. The Red Flyer drinks much better for the price.
