Neither was willing to confirm any white zin swilling by the justices, although Olson intimated that Scalia tends toward Sangiovese and Souter might prefer something milder. On top of the satisfaction of winning this case, Olson expressed his relief that as a resident of the state of Virginia, he wouldn't have to fear arrest for the many bottles of wine that his friends have sent him from out-of-state.
