When did I become a wine snob?

My dad keeps wanting to chill red wine. He put one bottle in the fridge, which I removed in horror after finding it there beneath the cold cut bin. I told him: Dad. You do not chill red wine.

Then, I went and bought a bottle at the liquor store, some Argentinian cabernet that was not great but was on sale. We uncorked.

-What, do you put ice in there?
-No.
-What about ice chips?
-No.
-You don’t even put a little shaved ice in there?
-No.

My dad pours two glasses, then proceeds to try to swirl his around and smell it after it’s almost completely full. We drink. My dad replaces the cork.

-So do we put this in the fridge now?
-NO.
