Especially when it was a heavily insulated car with a steel jacket and 2"-3" of insulation on the outside of the tank plus a thick steel bottom sheet with a glass lining inside. Aside from which the wine that was shipped in bulk wasn't very alcoholic (alcohol content increases with barrel aging) and didn't taste very good, so the results wouldn't have been, to say the least, disappointing. I agree with Tony that this and similar tales can be relegated to the waste bin entitled "urban myths."
