More good karma.
The neighbour who got stuck in front of my house yesterday and I allowed to park in my driveway overnight just rang my doorbell with a bottle of wine in hand as a "thank you" for helping her out. Not to mention she sent her husband this AM before I poked my nose out the door to shovel by hand the crap that the plow dumped blocking her in. I ended up having to do no more shoveling this morning than a bare minimum to clean up the edges.
Sure it's a Chilean Cabernet with a screw top cap but it's the thought that counts. Besides, I'm not really a wine drinker these days but I'll make good use of it cooking up a Hungarian Goulash or something this week.

Screw-top caps mean nothing, as they are well engineered these days and some very good and surprisingly costly wines are bottled that way. Also, while South American wines tend to cost less than those from many other regions, Chilean and Argentinian wines can hold their own with many excellent wines from other places, and often represent excellent value. So before you go pouring that Cab into a goulash, check it out and you may be surprised!

said by Wolfie00:Indeed. The chance of the wine spoiling due to a bad seal are comparatively quite high with cork than it is with a screw top. The only reason most wineries haven't switched to them is because of consumer perception.

But seriously though, everyone in this household is on too much medication to drink more than a glass at a sitting anyway. Age range here is from Old Fart to Ancient. I'll try a glass when I open it, but chances are most of it will end up in the cooking anyway.
