Interesting report, Dale. I saw the headline yesterday but hadn't read it yet, so I'm glad you posted.

For the record, no wine critic has never offered the blanket argument that expensive wines are better than cheaper bottles. But I have, many times, argued that $15 to $20 bottles are often better values than $10 bottles.


I have brought up the exact same thing with people who complain that a bottle of good wine is "too expensive." It becomes a rather uncomfortable conversation when I ask if their $9/12 oz. can of microbrew is "too expensive" for a single drink.
