"Bottle shock" is a temporary condition of wine characterized by muted or disjointed fruit flavors. It often occurs immediately after bottling or when wines (usually fragile wines) are shaken in travel....It is also a film opening tomorrow about by Randall Miller, about a small California winery and the shock waves it set off in 1976 when it beat out the most exalted French wines in international competition (The Judgement of Paris).
The film stars Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Chris Pine, Rachael Taylor, Freddy Rodriguez, Eliza Dushku, and Dennis Farina.
