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?

You should drink any wine out of the bottle. Particularly if it is Dom Perignon.

Yes.. you can even drink any wine out of the box...

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Sure, I decant it -- I pour it in a glass. Is that not enough?

I always at least Vinturi reds, unless I know we are going to kill off a whole bottle at once. Parties, holidays, special occasions (when I remember) are a different story - I always decant then.

But it's better to take a gigantic straw, cut the end at a 45 degree angle, and stab that box f wine like the adult Capri sun it is.
