Having your wine and drinking it too.

I decanted my wine for Open That Bottle Night at about 4pm. My sense of trepidation prior to cutting that beautiful foil was not lessened by the knowledge that we have one more bottle of Heitz Trailside in the cellar. I felt like I was about to destroy a valuable possession. How silly.

Coin collectors don't have this problem. There is no Spend That Double Eagle day. Luckily, I don't own any collectible wines. How awful it must be to have the ability to spend tens of thousands on one bottle of wine but, not to be able to drink it...
