So, this cute min-barrel of red wine sits on your kitchen counter day after day, patiently waiting for you to try it –again. You’ve already sampled it several nights in a row, and found it “quaffable” as they say. But it’s allegedly good for 40 days, so you wait and you wait. Day 35 you give in: it’s still the same! And it hasn’t been refrigerated. Day 39, day 40: the same. Something actually works the way “they” said it would. Another point for American ingenuity — or at least American wine; this wine is from Sonoma. Day 41 test? uh-oh, no wine left.
