Drink In. The 20-minute rule [Thirsty Thursdays!].

When recently drinking wine with some friends I just found out the rule for drinking wine. For reds 20 minutes chilled in the fridge, and for whites 20 minutes outside the fridge so you get the whole flavor. And the friend that recommended I do this works at a winery -- it's Chile, of course -- so I'd like to imagine she knows what she's talking about.

A lot of people believe that reds should be served at room temperature, but they're actually best slightly chilled (who wants to drink red wine that's 70 degrees Fahrenheit?)
