Ick. Wine, chocolate. Gross.
On a bet, I will drink Eiswein - If it is our anniversary, and my wife wants some. Otherwise, gimme a BIER!

Red wine like beer is an acquired taste. Years ago I did a lot of backpacking in the Sierra's with a writer friend and we took our kids up to introduce them to the outdoors. We would pack in a bottle of wine each, and then let them cool off a bit in a mountain stream ...., then pop open and let them breathe. Start a campfire, watch the wood snap and spark against the dark sky, and decide which wine was the best.
Red wine tastes much better and has a better bouquet in the thinner air high in the montains.
On a hot day, gimme a beer.

First, I entirely agree with you.
Second, there are exactly two kinds of wine: those that taste good (in context, naturally), and those that don't.
Geben sie mir ein anderos bier! (pls pardon the bad German ...(g!)).
