Default Juice Bag Has Small Leak!

I received a 16 liter wine kit today. The outer box was intact but the wine
kit box felt slightly damp when I took it out of the inner box. When I

top that I've not yet located. Here's my question: If the air tight seal on
the juice bag is compromised in any way then this renders the juice
unusable, right? I mean has anyone received a kit in similar condition and
gone on to make good wine? Bad wine? Didn't even bother?
