Hello my lovelies,

Do you like wine?
What kinds of wine do you prefer? Why?

Have you ever had a holy-crap fantastic bottle you'll probably never be able to have again?

Are you drinking right now? Wine? Booze? Water? :D



I do like wine!
I have a few preferences - Sauvignon blanc and pinot noir are generally my preferred grapes.

I have a small collection of holy-crap fantastic bottles that I'm afraid of drinking. I used to run a liquor store, and had a great relationship with my liquor guys. I have a bunch of bottles that were given to me from them, including a few bottles of champagne (Veuve Clicquot! That was a birthday gift from one of em :) )
I sadly cannot afford these on my own. The good thing is that I don't drink all that often. I'm more of a collector. It allows me to buy a $20 bottle now and then, rather than buying $10 bottles all the time. Nothing against $10 bottles, mind you, some of my favorite wines are actually in the $10 range, thank you Chile.

I'm currently drinking a wine I should probably be saving! Not really due to price, mostly because it is of limited availability. Its a Cono Sur 20 Barrel limited edition Cabernet Sauvignon from 2005 from Chile. It is flipping fantastic.
Edit - I should say, this is an expensive bottle of wine normally, but I know our store got sent this accidently, when we were charged for the cheaper one. I Mentioned it to relevant people, but we were told that if something like that happens we should just keep it, unless we were charged for a more expensive one and sent a cheaper one.
