A beautiful woman and a bottle of Merlot

A man asked a waiter  to take a bottle of Merlot to an unusually attractive woman  sitting alone at a table in a cozy little  restaurant.
So the waiter took the  Merlot to the woman and said, 'This is from the gentleman who  is seated over there'..... And indicated the sender with a nod  of his head.
She stared at the  wine coolly for a few seconds, not looking at the man, then  decided to send a reply to him by a note.
The waiter, who was  lingering nearby for a response, took the note from her and  conveyed it to the gentleman.
The note  read: 'For me to accept  this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, a  million dollars in the bank and 7 inches in your  pants'.
After reading the  note, the man decided to compose one of his own in return.
He  folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to  deliver it to the lady.
It read:  'Just to let you  know things aren't always what they appear to be, I have a  Ferrari Maranello, BMW Z8, Mercedes CL600, and a Porsche Turbo  in my several garages; I have beautiful homes in Aspen and  Miami , and a 10,000 acre ranch in Louisiana .
There is over  twenty million dollars in my bank account and portfolio. But,  not even for a woman as beautiful as you, would I cut off  three inches. Just send the wine back......
