old wine

Blame media for this! Think about those rich folks getting wine from their cellars and many of these bottles are caked with cobwebs. Or, blame it on those who’ve come up with the expression “you age like fine wine.” Letting it lie for years means that the flavors have blended well. Or so you thought. While this myth isn’t entirely untrue, so many people have misconstrued it. It actually depends on the wine you have. More commonly, the wine’s antioxidant content may actually decrease. So the next time people compare you to wine, give them a hard stare and slap their mouth. They obviously don’t know what they’re talking about.
