Is it too soon to start planning our 21st anniversary?

One of three bottles we brought back from our 20th anniversary trip to Europe was this bottle of Cinque Terre wine.  We tasted a lot of great wines on this trip -- and only a couple of crappy ones -- but the Cinque Terre wines were probably the best of the best.  If wine this good were available locally for as inexpensive as it was there I could give up beer and never miss it.
So it may be surprising that we've been home for a day and a half and still have not opened this.  More surprising is the fact that we're not going to open it until August 29th, 2014, which will be our 21st anniversary.  I have a feeling that our 21st will be a lot lower key that the 20th but that doesn't mean we can't drink this wine, close our eyes and pretend like we're back in Manarola.
By the way, you might think this is a sweet romantic gesture and it might be, but I also look at it as insurance. I mean if Kim finally gets enough of my mess in the next year and thinks about leaving I believe she might hang on just to get another taste of this wine.  Seriously, y'all, this stuff is great.
