Ack. Well, I agree with you. I just didn't explain my reasoning very well. The gist was that I don't need a special occasion to open a special bottle.
I agree with your reasoning completely. I don't see the point of waiting for some special life event to open a major bottle. The day you open one, THAT is the event. I opened my ORVW decanter set on a Wednesday afternoon I think, right before I went to the post office, no shit. I rarely drink anything during the day, but I figured "I have this" and I had an open PVW 23 so I had very small pours of each to give a good comparison.
