In the film Sideways, Maya—played by Virginia Madsen—explains why she loves wine so much.
“I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I’d opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive,” she says. “And it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline.”
