Sigh. The holidays are almost here again. I start preparing for holiday drinking in November, pulling some things out the cellar, deciding which bottles I want to serve with what. In hindsight, I had it good last year. Burgundy as I always do for Christmas and New Year, but a few bottles of 2005 Barolo and old vintage Ports as well. This year will hardly be as satisfying. Downgrading to say the least. Niagara/German/Chilean pinot noirs, some Chianti Classico, simple Spanish wines. Maybe the single bottle of Champagne and Sauternes. Sad. If I can't drink well, then I suppose I'll (cheaply) drink more then.
What are you drinking for the holidays?
