My wine smells of a wet dog

Wet Dog SmellWe had a wonderful dinner party last night.  It was perfect except for one thing … I poured a wine into a glass; and it smelled like a wet dog, soggy cardboard and mildewed wool!

I tried not to panic knowing I had other red wines we could open. But I  had been saving this wine and really wanted to share this bottle with friends.  I smelled again … same smell.  I grabbed another glass poured a small taste … no smells!  Same wine … different glasses.

I learned a lesson I am always preaching … soap and detergents even in minuscule amounts on a  wine glass can completely change the aromas of wine.  Looks like no more cheating with the dishwasher, and  I am back to hand washing all my glasses in hot water.
