Wine Noteworthy : Top Ten Signs You're a Wine Geek

1. You read wine blogs. (Actually, the list could end right here!)

2. You laughed when Miles said "If anybody orders Merlot, I'm leaving!", then mentioned his prize bottle was the famous merlot blend, Cheval Blanc

3. When holding a goblet of water, you absent-mindedly twirl it by its stem (this "Tasters Twitch" is a condition common among wine Geeks, for which there is no cure)

4. You have a strong (and unquestionably correct) opinion about point-based rating systems and what they are doing to the wine industry

5. You go out for dinner and insist on sniffing the bottle cap of a Coca-cola bottle

6. Your definition of fun is visiting wine stores and writing down which bottle has past it’s prime. And then telling the store manager about it

7. You have more t-shirts with wine logos than t-shirts with team or school logos

8. You get more upset by the loss of spilled wine than the tablecloth stain it caused

9. You remember your ex lovers by their favorite wine

10. You see nothing unusual about using your toilet cistren to store "just one more bottle of wine" at near-perfect serving temperature

    Too Funny. While tongue-in-cheek, I have to admit I probably said yes to more than my share. :)
