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?
-What about ice chips?
-You don’t even put a little shaved ice in there?
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?
