The results: Remember it was about Cork vs Twist-cap: We have a tie
- Both Cork and twist-cap did what they were supposed to do and did not damage, alter, change in any way the taste, quality of both wine tasted.
All six participent all agreed that the cork was harder to remove from the bottle then the Twist-cap but had preserved the wine magnificently.
The twist-cap was a no brainer to open.
Once opened both wine were served from a Decanter that had gone thru the *Venturi wine aerator.
-The Dead Arm 2007 Wine had more structure with a heavier taste at first, dried and locked its flavor in mouth for a good 20 seconds +. Not too acid (noted by taster #2) after 20 minutes of Oxidation in the decanter the Dead Arm, evolved to a new level and became much smother to drink, with hints of dark chocolate and licorice. This bad boy could use 5 years in cellar. Chris on MOJO Score: 93/100
- The St-Henri 2006, is well balance and did not evolved or change taste during the testing. Slightly lighter to drink at the beginning compare to the other wine tasted, the St-Henri is a more delicate wine smoother, with short time on mouth.Did not evolved and stay very stable while it lasted. Chris on MOJO Score: 90/100
The winner: all 6 agreed that the Dead arm was a hell of a wine. If you are wondering why its called *Dead Arm, check on Wikipedia.
