It's a screw top. I found this out when my cork remover wouldn't penetrate the top. The top came free with a confirming click, letting me know that no one had tampered with the wine by putting in, say, even more Livingston Cellars burgundy.
First sip: It's bitter without any ameliorating pleasant flavors. Sort of a brutish, heavy wine.
Second sip: Well, it warms my throat. It doesn't seem to be coming back up immediately at least.
Bottom of the glass: That was delicious! I feel so free and happy. It gives me a warm feeling in my tummy. Everyone is my friend!
Bottom of second glass: I want to share it with my neighbors. I think I'll sit outside with it. In fact, I feel like putting the whole bottle in a paper bag and sitting in my doorway drinking it.
I'm not sure how the rest of the evening turned out. I think I liked the food. I think I liked everything. I think my head split open the next morning and revealed a flaming skull. I think I'm going to be sick.
Well, there you have it. Another, um, recommendation for Livingston Cellars burgundy!
