Untangled Vine

An attempt to sort through all things wine. Specifically of, and about, but not limited to: Food and Wine in Toledo, Ohio. Plus the day to day musings of a Wine Distributor...
 

For those of you that bought the Lion King Soundtrack... (Janeane Garofalo reference alert)

Australian News.com Story-Oct 11, 2005l

Ok, I have shied away from entering a daily log in favor of simply publishing when I devote a considerable amount of time to a specific topic, but this one got me. I am beyond skeptical about this new device. My biggest concern is that it works, and people will buy these out of Wine Enthusiast, stock their cellars with them, and then buy up all the Blackstone they can find in hopes of improving this wine via electrolysis. Um, this is sort of like Frankenstein. Rule #1 when deciding which wine will improve by aging (and now in this case, by electrocution) is: If it never had it, it never will. In other words, if a wine wasn’t age-worthy in the first place, you can’t just electrocute it into being great. My second problem with this is associated with Rule #2 of aging wine: be gentle. Vibration, sudden temperature change, too much or too little humidity and light all have a dramatic influence in maturing wine, what havoc could this device possibly wreak? So until someone I respect as a wine professional shows me otherwise, this has got to be a fraud. Until then, buy a decanter.
