Wine Myth Busting: 
Q: Price of Wine - Is More Expensive Always Better?
A: No. More expensive does not mean it is always better. People can be tricked into taste. Drink what you like -- that is Cheryl’s rule. Here’s more about the study she mentioned

Why expensive wine appears to taste better: It's the price tag https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170814092949.htm

Q: To decant or not decant wine? When and why do you decant wine?
A: Yes IF: 
  1. it’s a young red wine that is from a moderate to warm climate that would benefit from air in order to soften the mouth feel
  2. If the wine in unfined and unfiltered, it could have sediment
  3. if the wine is old -- it depends on the type of grape: cabernet sauvignon, nebbiolo, merlot, some syrahs, etc. or a pinot that is old might throw sediment so you can decanter to remove the bitter chunks.
  4. If the wine is young and their reds do well with decanting for air, e.g. local Cornell University alumni vineyard: Turley Wines: http://www.turleywinecellars.com/

Q: Can you bring your own bottle of wine to a restaurant and just pay the corkage fee? 
A: It depends. Some restaurants allow this, whereas it may not be legal to bring your own alcohol due to local, state, provincial or regional laws. It’s always best to ask the restaurant the following questions: (1) Do they allow corkage (if you bring your own bottle)? And (2): Are there any restrictions to corkage? Some might restrict you from bringing a bottle on the restaurant’s wine list. Often you can do this in a number of wine regions and areas, but it’s always good to ask when in a new area.  Some food places do this to enjoy the local wine countries, for example FLX Wienery https://flxwienery.com/ is one in Ithaca
