Well, usually at these big wine tastings, they put out paper cups for you to use as spittoons. None were offered at this tasting. I pounded the wine like there was no tomorrow. I can't claim that my palate wasn't affected. But I was really, really happy, and mingling like I've never mingled before. At about 2 ounces per pour, I must have drunk at least about 2/3 of a bottle three hours into the tasting. It was great. Walking along King Street after, I was mesmerized by the lights.
I was so drunk.DF
