This is a great video from Vox explaining why buying a cheap bottle of vino isn’t a bad idea. And I’ll never be able to get the phrase “oaky afterbirth” out of my mind. (Shudder)
And here’s another interesting fact, regarding wine — a 2005 study found that the scores of “wine experts” are essentially meaningless. The typical judge’s scoring of a wine varied by plus/minus four points over three blind tastings poured from the same bottle. So listen to your tongue and taste buds and not some dude swishing expensive and cheap wine for a living.
