4. Hahahaha!

No, in mine. My wife left 3/4 of an open bottle. She's away until Friday. Thought I would have some each evening for my high blood pressure.

31. Well you know where she is.

And how much she talks about you. Oh, the stories she tells. The horrible NC-17 stories!
I'll never be able to look at Spaghetti-Os the same way, ever again.

6. Weeks and weeks if you keep all oxygen away

Assuming you don't have an easy CO2 or Nitrogen source to displace all the oxygen, it will comfortably last a couple of three four days, or even a week, if you cork it. Blow some breath into into the bottle to help it along, your breath has a higher CO2 level then regular air.

13. Really depends how many people are in the room, the body temperature of each,

plus whether or not they are drinkers.

28. Chug-a-lug Chug-a-lug

Chug-a-lug chug a lug
Make you wanna holler hidy ho,
Burns your tummy don't you know
Chug-a-lug chug-a-lug

Grape wine in a Mason jar
Homemade and brought to school
By a friend of mine after class
Me and him and this other fool
Decided that we'll drink up what's left
Chug-a-lug so we helped ourself
First time for everything
Umm my ears still ring

Chug-a-lug Chug-a-lug
Make you wanna holler hidy ho,
Burns your tummy don't you know
Chug-a-lug chug-a-lug

4 H and a FFA
On a field trip to a farm
Me and a friend sneak off behind
This big old barn
Where we uncovered a covered up
Moonshine still
And we thought we'd drink our fill
And I swallowed it with a smile
Bbbb I run ten mile

Chug-a-lug chug a lug
Make you wanna holler hidy ho,
Burns your tummy don't you know
Chug-a-lug chug-a-lug

Jukebox and a sawdust floor
Somethin' like I ain't never seen
Heck I'm just going on 15,
But with the help of my fanaglin' uncle
I get snuck in
For my first taste of sin
I said let me have a big old sip
Bbbb I done a double back flip

Chug-a-lug chug a lug
Make you wanna holler hidy ho,
Burns your tummy don't you know
Chug-a-lug chug-a-lug chag a chagle uh

30. Well here I sit a'high, gettin' ideas

 

Ain't nothing but a fool'd live like this
Out all night and runnin' wild
Woman sittin' home with a month old child

So dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman would you weep for me.

Just sittin' around drinkin' with the rest of the guys
Six rounds bought, and I bought five
Spent the groceries and half the rent
Like fourteen dollars and twenty seven cents.

Roses are red and violets are purple
Sugar is sweet and so is maple syrple
I'm the seventh out of seven sons
My pappy was a pistol I'm a son of a gun.

19. Dry farmed old vine Zinfandel grapes are coveted

Throw that bottle in the refer to slow down the oxidation, and just let it warm up a bit before drinking.

22. You'll know when it goes. Then you can tell us how long it lasts.

Until then, just drink up.

25. Assuming I have a friend helping me

consume it, and we're not pushing it, a bottle (750 ml) will last about an hour.

Somehow, however, I suspect that this wasn't what you were actually asking . . . .

27. Took me about an hour on Christmas eve to knock one back

So, it really depends.

sadly, I also drank a bottle of champagne and some cranberry vodka that night and ended up in the ER the next morning, so my advice is just to stick to the Zin.

29. I have a wine saver vacuum pump like this one ...



I've found that a Cabernet or a red Zin will keep for a week or so using it.
