Tipping On Alcohol

I think you missed the point with your answer to the reader who questioned your article on 'Tipping on Alcohol'. No more "service or labor" is required to serve a $200 bottle than is required to serve a $40 bottle at the same restaurant. I always tip at least 20% on my meal cost; sometimes more when the meal cost is very small, because the service and labor should be recognized. I do not agree that a bottle cost of several hundred dollars justifies a full 20% tip. If the server is extremely helpful and efficient , maybe 20%, but I always offer the server a taste of a fine bottle.
