Non-vintage

Thursday.  Brought to you by the letter N; as in Non-vintage.

My definition:
N - Non-vintage
.  This term is usually associated with sparkling wine.  Most sparkling wines are a blend of wine from various vintages, hence the letters, “NV” on your bottle of bubbly.  Back when I first began drinking wine, a friend asked me what the ‘NV’ meant on our bottle of California sparkling wine.  Wanting to impress, I took a thoughtful, serious look at the bottle and said, “I believe it means Napa Valley.”  She rolled her eyes and forced me to admit I actually had no idea what ‘NV’ meant.  Now I do; and you do as well.
