I like to think about the life of wine, how it's a living thing....don't think that performance didn't help Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor win their Oscar for Best Screenplay!
I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing, how the sun was shining that summer or it it rained... what the weather was like. I think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes, and if it's an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I love how wine continues to evolve, how every time I open a bottle it's going to taste different than if I had opened it on any other day. Because a bottle of wine is actually alive --it's constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks --like your '61 --and it begins its steady, inevitable decline.
And it tastes so fucking good.
Now can someone please give Ginny something more than a "girlfriend / wife of" role soon. Firewall, The Astronaut Farmer, Number 23 ...? surely someone in Hollywood can think of a better use for her gorgeously aged radiance.
