Dream wine: On an eternal quest to answer this question.
I'm a project manager, estimator, and business developer for a general contractor specializing in military, institutional, and commercial construction. Besides wine, I love cars, the stock market, music, concerts, 2-channel audio equipment, cinema, photography, watches, sporting clays & skeet, RC flying, bicycling, golf, racquetball, snowboarding, and traveling.
I've liked wine since first stealing some sips from my Dad at a very young age (14?). I dabbled through college and after until I could afford to do some serious collecting. Now, I'm afraid I have what many would call a problem, or at least some prioritization issues.
I've learned to discard generalizations in short order. While I have my tendencies, I've had outstanding–and terrible–wines of many regions and types. My goal is to acquire a few bottles of everything–build a collection of a very wide range of wines, and learn about them all.
Emerson, the champion of individualism, was a proponent of experimentation and change: "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow," he said.
