Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I think wine woot is trying to fine out what decade I started drinking in.

My brother's oldest whine is - why was I born into a weird family?!?

Ah, the hell with it.

I answered 80's to 70's becasue that is when I first was given a taste of wine and it was probably from the 70's in the 70's

1927 no name Burgundy, drank it two years ago, I will never forget it. I have said it before and I'll say it again, I think if faeries drink wine, they would drink Burgundy. Delicate, ethereal, sublime yet tons of structure. I have had the good fortune to drink a lot of old, fine Bordeaux wines but I do love a fine old Burgundy also. I will say it is much easier to find a bad bottle of Burgundy than a bad bottle of Bordeaux which may be part of the appeal to the old Burgundy. When you get a good one, it is an experience!

My dogs like me, that is important.

Amazingly enough yes. It obviously had that old wine flavor but it wasn't oxidized or any other negative changes and it was amazingly delicate and complex.
