Who made up the rules for wine? I try to make myself like more red wines, but I find myself more drawn to the sweet and citrus-flavored white wines. Mind you, I gave up Boone's Farm years ago. I, however, can't go too far beyond a late harvest Riesling or a New Zealand Savignon Blanc. Does that make me an uncouth red-neck? I think not. Also, who came up with the rule that red wines are best enjoyed at room temperature? Who drinks anything at room temperature? I am from the south. If you drink it, it's either piping hot or cold as ice. I do agree that red wines taste better when given a little time to breathe, but drinking anything at 76 degrees makes me want to spit up. I really don't know why I'm talking about this tonight, except that perhaps I've had a little too much wine (mixed with a good dose of Nyquil). I guess I just don't feel like discussing what our president is ruining today, or debating whether or not some freak-o religious group has the right to burn the Koran. I'd rather just enjoy my Monkey Bay Savignon Blanc and go watch an episode of Ghost Hunters on SyFy.
