Overheard at the dinner table

"This Vigonier* seems to be off, it IS an '03, after all.  See, this is why we need a Monogram Walk-In Wine Vault."

'Cuz the computer would tell us that the bottle in slot B73 was at the peak of it's drinkability.

Honestly, it's only recently we got all the bottles together and looked at what we have.  If you saw the movie Sideways, there's a scene where the character Miles is describing his "cellar" as a cardboard box under the stairs; that's not too far off from what we have.  "Had", actually: Like I said, we have all our wine in racks, and more-or-less inventoried now.

*Pronounced "Vee-own-Yay."  It was a bottle of Fess Parker Vigonier that actually got us started doing more than just asking the waiter what was recommended with whatever we were ordering for dinner.
Yes, Fess Parker, Dan'l Boone, Davy Crockett, the pilot in Them!.  And, speaking of Sideways, the scene where Miles drank from the spit bucket, set at the "Fraz" winery, was filmed in the Fess Parker tasting room.  FWIW.
