You're not missing out a thing!

 

Wine tasting is junk science.

At a certain point everything becomes subjective and junk science. But I can DEFINITELY tell you the difference between a $5 $10 and $50 bottle of wine....

What if you couldn't see the bottle?

I'm not talking about syrupy kiddush wines or "grape soda"

Granted there are many overrated and overpriced wines, but even the SMELL gives it away half the time...

Most people can tell the difference between rotgut, an okay table wine, and something really fine.

 

And most people (including myself) cannot make really fine distinctions--say, between vintages.

Nevertheless, there are a few that can, and for those few, the differences are significant.

That assumption has not been born out by blind testing.

Oh, I thought you were addressing kosher foodies in general, not just yourself.  My bad.
