    They have done proper blind wine tests colouring white to red, the experts didnt notice, experts saying the known or fancy bottle was the more expensive (when it was the same wine) . So just drink wine you like, price is not an indication of quality!

    Just to throw a curveball at her; it would've been interesting to hear her take on Wild Irish Rose vs Thunderbird. I'd love to hear her critique. I'd love to see her face as she inhales one of those two bum wines.

    There has been a lot posted on web sites lately about how "you can't tell the difference between cheap and expensive wines". This shows that you can learn to tell the difference if you train your palate and learn to appreciate the nuances of wine.

    “I’m a wine expert” ... “There is a danger factor” … “hear a whisper, which means you have done it correctly” .… none of which are accurate in any way.
