I saw this article recently from Julia Larson at VinePair, where she gives a nice perspective on the current state of screw caps in the world of wine.

"Ask a Wine Pro: Is All Screw-Cap Wine Bad?", Julia Larson, VinePair.com

I hadn't considered one benefit of a screw cap system - when done properly, a screw cap can eliminate the risk from cork taint. Eliminating cork taint ensures the wine flavor remains fresh and as intended by the winemaker, from point of bottling all the way / until the point of opening. That's a super interesting benefit that I hadn't considered before.

But, naturally, my mind goes immediately to the next step in the bottle's reason for existence. Specifically, once you crack the screw cap and pour a glass of wine, how do you preserve that fresh wine flavor until you want a second glass?

Some important wine preservers on the market do not work with screw cap wine bottles! Instead, in some cases, you have to purchase (and have on hand) an accessory closure to facilitate the device / needle working properly with a crew cap bottle, and therefore be able to preserve the bottle of wine for a future pour.
