tested a gadget called the Perfect Sommelier, mfg by LK MFG Corp. Tried it on a bottle of Rosemount Cab Sauv 1999. Results were tested by me,a wine drinker and my wife,a non- wine drinker. The gadget worked as advertised.

Hi Gary. Are you now selling the gadget? This has been hammered to death earlier. WW

just reporting on how it worked here.

They are a blatant fraud -- too bad they can't be shut down like false drug advertizing. Oh course there are a hundred scams on weight loss, cleaners, get rich quick schemes, etc. Buyer beware.

I hate to beat a dead horse even more .... but. I went to the web site and I just don't understand what the deal is. It looks like a wine bottle coaster with magnets. It says it "ages and rounds any wine in 30 minutes". Other than vigorously aerating, how can you artificially age a wine in 30 minutes? It also says it "improves aroma and gives wine a fuller body, less acid, more mellow". Excuuuse me? How can a non-intrusive, static device possibly improve aroma? How can it possibly make a wine less acid short of neutralizing the acid with a base solution or by diluting it with something like water? As far as I know, there is nothing ferrous in wine, so how would a weak magnetic field be able to alter the characteristics of wine? What would it purport to do to a bottle of single malt Scotch, or a bottle of port? There is absolutely nothing on their web site that explains the principle behind the wild claims. Call me a skeptic, but I think it's just a crock. Their tag line is "Enjoy your favorite wine even more". I like my 1997 Phelps Insignia just fine the way it is, thank you.

"Enjoy your favorite wine even more..."

That is the same sentiment that causes us to run into cinnamon/pepper/chocolate/moca cappuccino/latte/ bagels. Americans are never satisfied with the simple and good--which to me is often great--we must improve on it!

Well Drew A FINE Mess You Got Us into The time OLLIE!!! Just found out I have 9 infected files. 5 with something called PWS-Hooker.dll, and 4 with W32/BadTrans@MM. Have sent out the smoke-signal to McAfee to send the simpleton solution. Will keep posted . WW
I received a bunch of Spam from that Aussie Idiot Ozesurfer last Sun. I report him everytime. I think that's where this brett came from.
