    Just checking hon…I answered one week to keeping an open bottle as I learned that if you keep it in the fridge it retards the oxidation process…

    Even my wife keeps me sharp and on the ball with my wine research. Cheers Hon!

    A bottle left open only lasts about 10 minutes with the kind of friends I have!

  7. Craig October 29, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    That’s 8 minutes longer than my friends!

    My score was 7 out of 15.

    Failed miserably but was very educational.

    Thank you.
