This is a neat article on the wines in Sideways and on the movie itself. There was one line in the movie, also mentioned in the article, that stuck with me (movie lines never stick with me):
"We drank a ’95 Opus One with smoked salmon and artichokes, but we didn’t care!"
I found this funny, because I remember Opus One. Er, I remember seeing Opus One, driving by it several times, and telling Kevin that we could barely afford to look at the place. This is one of my photos of Opus One. Here’s another – and check out the car leaving it. The idea that anyone would pair anything but the finest food (certainly not artichokes) with Opus One and not care was funny to me. As it was meant to be, I guess.
