The best idea is, of course, the idea that is mine. I’ve been told I have talent. I’m creative. I’ve taken that praise to heart, but really, I’m only creative under the right circumstances.
Obviously, you must aerate and decant me. And before that, I need to be horizontal at 55°F in a damp, dark room — preferably a wine cellar, but I understand budget constraints. And don’t shake me around a lot, okay? Just remember that as long as everything is how I want it, I’m flexible and brilliant.
