I suppose I didn't make the decanter usage clear in my original post. In my defense, I'd had a glass or two of wine. Though I did not pour it from an erlenmeyer flask.
No worries. I was making fun of myself more than anyone else.
I just assumed it was a "who thinks they can get that for a flask from a home brewer/vintner" kind of joke.
People I know who blindly follow the wine enthusiast probably would think it's a great deal. They have paid through the nose for highly rated wines, been sorely disappointed and have then gone back for more recommendations.
