Re: Has Anyone Been Drinking BerserkerDay Wines Lately?

My note from DV8 Viognier, I feel pretty strongly this was flawed. I have never had a Berserker wine I didnt enjoy and reading reviews of this wine I think this would be in my wheelhouse: Marking this as flawed. Smells of cork taint.

Re: what is too hot for shipping?

I agree with Vincent I think wine is way more durable than we give it credit for. If I was OP I wouldnt think twice about having it shipped. Trophy wines you are going to lay down or flip and high temps could/should be a different story.
