Mismatched Cork?

Kat | Sep 2, 2013 01:41 PM

Ok, we had a BBQ this weekend and someone brought a bottle of Yellow Tail Merlot (hmmmm... but this person hasn't a lot of funds to spend). Anyhoo, when he uncorked it, the cork said Rioja and had info about its origin in Spanish, which he tossed before I could get a good look. Anyone know why? Are they reusing corks? Buying overstock cheap? So strange.
