Do More Expensive Wines Taste Better?

Check out the latest Freakonomics podcast on whether more expensive wines taste "better".   It's great fun (if listening to economists can be called fun). 

Their basic point?  Too many "experts" make wine out to be something complicated and too many consumers buy wine based on what these experts tell them they're supposed to like or, worse, based on price.  To quote from their concluding remarks:  "Wine isn't supposed to be a's a celebration...civilization in a glass..."

So, especially for the next 2 weeks, drink what you like and lots of it.  Just relax and enjoy!
