Bad bottles were sold. When the store was made aware they offered a discount instead of a refund. The wine is undrikable.

Dear bottle advice
I acknowledge that you offered a refund. But in comparison another shop at which I got a wine that leaked offered to arrange for pick up. You expect me to arrange (and maybe pay) shipment in order to fix a problem not caused by me.
As you probably know Tawny ports are meant to be consumed within a couple of years from bottling. The ports you sold have more than ten years in the bottle (and from the taste they have not been stored correctly). If a tawny or colheita is not freshly bottled it should be clearly stated when selling them.
A satisfactory solution would be new bottles or a refund. Anything else is a waste of time.
