Wine 101 – Cost vs. Quality


TYPICALLY, THE MORE EXPENSIVE SOMETHING IS, THE BETTER THE QUALITY THAT MAY NOT BE THE CASE WHEN IT COMES TO WINE. JASON IS BACK TO HELP US NAVIGATE THAT. WELCOME THANK YOU I’M EXCITED. WE’RE PLAYING A GAME HERE WE ARE WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO, TASTE TEST? I’VE BROUGHT SPARKLING WINES A CHAMPAGNE, AND ONE FROM OREGON. WE’LL TASTE TEST AND SEE IF YOU CAN PICK THEM OUT. ONE IS PRICED UP TO $59 AND DOWN TO $20. YOU TASTE THEM AND I’LL TALK ABOUT THEM FROM A CONSUMER PERSPECTIVE. YOU THINK MORE EXPENSIVE IS BETTER AND THAT’S NOT NECESSARILY THE CASE IN WINE. THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS THAT GO INTO THE PRICE OF A WINE. WE’RE GOING TO COMPARE TODAY SO THAT’S FIRST ONE HERE TASTE THE FIRST WINE, WHAT ARE Y’ALL GETTING OUT OF THAT? I NEVER KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE WINE JUST WHATEVER BUBBLY I’LL TELL YOU THIS, I LIKE IT IS IT DRIER IT IS DRIER. A LITTLE APPLE BE TOAST ON THERE — AND TOAST ON THERE APPLE, OKAY MAYBE MOVE TO THE SECOND SPARKLING AND GET NOTES ON THAT. WHAT I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME WHEN THEY ASK ME, WHAT DOES WINE COST SHOULD I BUY MORE EXPENSIVE WINE, YOU KNOW, ITS THE QUESTION I GET ASKED MOST OF ANYTHING. MY ADVICE IS ALWAYS TO TASTE, TASTE, AND TASTE TO DEVELOP YOUR PALLET SO YOU CAN NOW DISCERN BETWEEN YOU BUYING AN EXPENSIVE WINE THAT’S GREAT AND MAYBE FINDING ONE AT A LOWER PRICE THAT IS ALSO GREAT SIMILARITIES HERE I’M GOING TO SAY THIS ONE IS THE MORE EXPENSIVE THAT’S WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY TOO ARE YOU ALSO GOING TO SAY THAT I WAS GOING TO SAY THE SECOND YES YOU BOTH THINK THE SECOND WINE IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE AND IT IS THE SPARKLING FROM OREGON AND IT RETAILS FOR $20 THE OTHER IS CHAMPAGNE FROM FRANCE AND IT RETAILS FROM 50 TO $55 REALLY THERE YOU GO COMPLETELY BLIND HERE RIGHT GREAT, SO THAT WORKED THE NEXT ARE CABERNET FROM NAPA VALLEY. WE HEAR ABOUT NAPA VALLEY AS LIKE THE GOD FATHER OF GRAPES. I BROUGHT ONE THAT RETAILS FOR $62 AND ONE FOR 26 TO $28. OKAY, NATALIE IS ENJOYING THIS ONE A LITTLE MORE. I KNOW SHE LIKES THE BIG REDS YOU CAN TELL THAT AS YOU’RE SIPPING, I’LL SAY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT GOES INTO THE WINE PRICING. A LOT F TIMES, — OF TIMES, SPECIFIC REGIONS OR VINEYARDS OR TYPES OF GRAPES ARE MORE PREFERABLE SO SOME AGE WORTHY WINES WILL BE MORE EXPENSIVE AND NECESSARILY SO BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY ARE TWO IS THE MORE EXPENSIVE I WAS GOING TO SAY THE FIRST ONE OKAY, LET’S SEE THIS IS THE FIRST ONE. THIS IS THE 2013 U AND THIS HERE AND SO NO. 2 IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE GOT THAT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, FOLLOW YOUR PREFERENCE, FOLLOW YOUR TASTE, FOLLOW YOUR NOSE AND THAT EXPERIENCE WILL
