What the Heck Happened...

...To the price of cabernet sauvignon? It has gone absolutely nuts. Even the "low-end" stuff is now starting at $9.99 a bottle, and odds are you wouldn't want to drink that. The 99-point stuff listed in Wine Spectator (yes, I'm a subscriber) averages $150 a bottle. Who the heck can afford to buy wine this way, much less drink it? As Jean-Luc Picard said in Star Trek: First Contact, "The economics of the future are somewhat different." Indeed.

Welcome to the future.
