I just had a lovely evening drinking a nice Merlot and watching this absolute gem of a movie about love, life and more importantly wine… This is a case of “If i were to explain, you wouldn’t understand” in terms of trying to tell someone why the movie is so good and I’m sure it’s not to everyone’s taste. come on now, it’s an indie flick and has all the indie ingredients. The person that will enjoy this movie is the same type of person that will be in love with this quote taken from it:
How it’s a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to 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 like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I’d opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks, like your ’61. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline.
need I write more? didnt think so
