No.. it only depends on the age on the bottle it was poured out of. If you have a 3-year old Macallan 12, it won't become a Macallan 15. No no no!

Aged for 15 years, and if I hold on to it for 4 years, wonít the age really be 20 years? Of course may be real aging is happening in charred oak barrels.

I am still not a wine expert, but by now I can judge a good merlot, cab and bordeaux.

Well, I was new in the USA and happened to visit a fancy restaurant in San Francisco. I was looking at the wine list and saw a similar named wine listed twice. One was for $20 a bottle and the other was for $40. I asked the server, what is the difference in these wines as they are from the same winery.

The server had a dead pan expression when he said, "about 20 dollars"



Well, since then I realized that many wines are just expensive for the heck of it. Offcourse there are some which are vintage and rightly command the price.

But I usually look for wines which are about 4 years old and that's okay for me.
The point of this thread was not about wine, but about the conversation about wine.

There are some snooty-ass wine drinkers who will get all snooty about wines at a dinner table. Nowadays, even desis do it.

The tips I offered on this thread will ensure good solid responses to wine drinkers, regardless of whether you know shit about wine or not.

Btw, you never discuss the price of a wine with the server at a fancy restaurant. You become the joke, not them ... just saying!

Unless you are a true wine connoisseur, you wont be able to tell the difference between a good wine and expensive wine, but you don't have to advertise that. Always pretend that you know the difference, but you chose to stick to the time-tested and hand-picked wine.

So I'm saying, if you are at a fancy restaurant, then pick brands like Rodney Strong or Silverado. If you feel rich, pick Silver Oak or Caymus. Pick cab or merlot or bordoex or whatever, but make it sound like you know everything there is to know about wines, yet made a conscious choice to pick that particular wine.

I was new in the USA with little or no knowledge about wine.

Since those days, when I have wine in a restaurant, I just look at the wine list. If I see something from Napa or any other part of California, I generally order that.

Re: Wine drinkers

Whiskey stops aging once it leaves the cask and gets into a bottle. So even if you keep the whiskey for 10 years in a bottle, the aging has actually stopped when it was bottled.

In grocery stores, do you get old wine?

When discussing wine, terminology is of utmost importance. The purpose of discussing wine is to sound elitist, especially if you are a desi.

Never say 'old' wine. It is 'AGED' wine. The difference between old vs aged is sounding stupid vs elitist.

Re: Wine drinkers

How smart and elite a few sound on these forums is unbelievable! Wonder whether one has that confidence in their voice when you meet them in person? Or one is just seen blabbering in crazy accents trying to remember what they really want to say v/s what one's actually saying, be it a joke or sher-o-shayari. People are barely even able to read a joke out loud for God's sake without making a fool of themselves.

P.S. Just an observation. I could be wrong

All liquor stops aging once poured out of cask.


Anyways,

Who cares. Saali sab ek jaisi chadhti hai.

You are wrong about me. Many can vouch ....... When I talk the girls drop their panties.......

Then I apologize for bumping into them in Laundromat and carry on with my laundry....

WTH I stood here (reading your comment) in bewilderment for some time, wondering whether or not you slipped into the girl's womanhood as well tch tch. I was hoping you'd slip into her sexuality, her desire, her shame and loathing but instead of that I had to read about your withdrawal! Damn you

P.S. Btw, was it a leopard print panty? Have you come across any?? You know what they say about a woman who wears leopard print panty, right
