This weekend is traditionally known as one of celebration -- even with that pesky working Monday coming along before the official parties of New Year's Eve. So what better time than now to show off some wine knowledge?
It's Friday night. You and your nearest and dearest arrive at the new, swanky restaurant in town, dressed to kill and ready to celebrate your anniversary/big promotion/making it through another week virtually unscathed. Everything is perfectly right with the world until the wine list is dropped in your lap. Now what?
Yes, these pricey, legendary bottles are luxurious, ostentatious and maybe even ridiculous, but should the sky start falling, these are the wines we're reaching for.
