Default I won a bottle of wine as a door prize at a recent wine tasting

I'd expect if kept cool it would last a few years in big format, but it's not really a wine designed to age, and doubt there would be any improvement. Best solution is open at a party (doesn't have to be winegeeks, not really a winegeek type of wine, but bet everyone would get a kick out of big bottle).

Thanks Dale,
I always appreciate your thoughts and posts. I guess I'll have a couple
of years to figure out what to do with this bottle. In the mean time,
I'll cradle it with a towel and lay it on the cool basement floor.
