  • 21.5% - … is a rare treat. 231
  • 8.1% - … means you can’t go back to the cheaper stuff. 87
  • 19.5% - … is way too expensive for me. No thanks. 210
  • 17.8% - … is a great way to show it’s a special occasion. 191
  • 21.1% - … is a waste of money I could be spending on mixed drinks. 227

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 received a bottle of 2009 Caymus Select Cab, ($130) as an award at work. I can't bring myself to open it any time soon. We've decided to hold it until our 20th anniversary in about 7 years. It would probably still not be at its ultimate peak, but I'll be doing good to wait that long as it is.

I would actually suggest opening sooner rather than holding it for a while. Caymus is not built for the long haul.

Had a 1995 Chateau Trotanoy last week. Picked it up half price at a wine shop last spring. Was still going strong, needing an hour of decanting to fully open.
