Ask Andy – Wine Connoisseur

This installment of Ask Andy is brought to you by Chelsey, who asks:

So Andy, what was it like having all that wine and knowing you couldn’t really get “drunk” no matter how many bottles you drank?

To be honest, it was a little disappointing. As a Breather, I always enjoyed a good glass of Merlot or Cabernet. But when you’re a zombie, your senses tend to deteriorate, especially your sense of taste and smell. So I missed the bouquet of a good wine. And I couldn’t appreciate the subtleties and nuances between a 1982 Chateau Haut Brion Bordeaux and a 2010 Charles Shaw Pinot Grigio. They all tasted like concentrated grape juice.

But there are definite benefits of not having a functioning circulatory system. Like waking up without a pounding headache or spending half the day with my face in the toilet.

Thanks for the question!
