"American Greed," featuring Rudy Kurniawan

The Deanster was kind enough to send me the link to the episode of "American Greed" that features Rudy Kurniawan.  Yesterday I had a chance to watch it.  First and foremost, it's a TV show; a bit sensational, production value; but it serves its purpose well in presenting the niche wine to a broad audience.

Earlier today, still thinking about it, I confess to wondering: in the rush of egos who was the Frankenstein and who was the monster?  That aside, here are some links and things.

[I've twice linked this episode, and it's twice been removed from general viewing.  I hope you got to see it.]

The formulas.

Tips for spotting counterfeit wine.   (Something I hope a certain Mr. Koch has since read.)
