Decanting and some drinking

Drank a very, very interesting wine this weekend, will talk about it later. From now on, I'm definitely decanting everything - white wines, red wines, sweet wines....everything short of sparkling wines. It really makes a huge difference.

Learned that you never talk about wine, or anything for that matter, in black and white terms. Someone who's wine knowledge I respect very much told me that "You can't drink wine that's more than 5 years old. The acidity doesn't matter, it just doesn't age." And to that, I respectfully disagree. I've had 2 German rieslings recently that were so beautiful - a 6 year old wine and a 14 year old riesling. Both showed wonderfully, and proved that blunt statements like that are misleading and quite frankly, ignorant.

Watching a lot of the Olympics. The competition's been amazing.
