Someone brilliantly coined, “life’s too short to drink cheap wine.” If I’m going to consume the sugars and calories from a glass of wine, it’s going to be worth it.  I enjoy everything about the experience of drinking a glass of wine: the bouquet of fruits, herbs, grass, tobacco, toast, vanilla, or chocolate; the crispness of a summer white glass; the aftertaste that, in a good wine, will persist in its fruitiness or spiciness; the tannins of reds, mild and firm. Drinking a glass of wine alone allows me to enjoy the richness and beauty of it, but drinking a good wine with someone shares the experience, making it all the more fun.
