        I feel like I should care more about this, but I just can't muster the energy. As much as I would like to have access to the great wines of the world, I accept that I will likely never taste a Petrus or any of its kin.

        It does reinforce the notion that at a certain level, (and I hope I am buying well below that level), it is a huge Ponzi scheme.

        A few weeks back someone asked what a $300 bottle tastes like. The answer may be; it tastes like fraud.
