Opened a bottle of Pinot on the weekend.
It went bad. Boo.
That'll teach you! Never leave any in the bottle to go bad. Silly
I'm sorry, I'm not an alchy like you. Can't finish a bottle to myself!!
You're not supposed to drink alone. Duh!
When I opened it I wasn't alone!
It's because you left the "t" off of pinot. It's finicky like that. Yeah, I saw that post before you edited it!!
No kidding, it's a more delicate varietal, and though some winemakers can add some stuffing to certain bottlings, it should be consumed within a day of being opened. You let it oxidize. :x
I toast this fallen bottle with my glass of 2003, single-vineyard Ravenswood Teldeschi Dry Creek Valley zinfandel. That would be Sonoma Valley. Only 2,400 cases produced. woOt! :mrgreen:
ahhh.....perfect ending to a crappy day. You can bet none of THIS bottle will succumb to the fate of your pinot.
Have you guys ever read the Maddox blog?
specifically this one...
I love that page, it's just sooo wrong
Someone's gotta be honest. I consider myself in likeness of the infamous Maddox. Only my choice of words and poor grammar/spelling skills leave me at a loss for quality humour.
Reading wine tasting notes (or "TN"s as the snobs say) is absolutely hilarious. These guys are serious, too. They really, really mean it when they say that a wine is "a sexy red", one that "explodes on the palate" and flavors that "thrusts layers upon layers into your throat". Seriously, guys....go rent some porn. Maybe you'll get it out of your system that way. :meh:
Crazy biz, 'tis.
Yeah, I much prefer porn to wine. Although if you can combine the two you're in for a nite of much fun.
You should subscribe to some wine rags. :thumbup: You're the perfect customer! :mrgreen:
