P.T. Barnum--"a sucker born every minute"
No confidence that the clef du vin (wine key) really speeds up the maturity process of a wine.

FWIW, P. T. Barnum is most often associated with the circus sideshow and the display of freaks. While this is true, he is also the founding force behind one of America's most famous circuses: Barnum & Bailey Circus. Barnum is also affiliated with the famous quote "There's a sucker born every minute." History, unfortunately, has misdirected this quotation. Barnum never did say it. Actually, it was said by his competitor, a banker named David Hannum.

I just received one of these as a gift yesterday and began reading some things on the net. My natural inclination is to be skeptical, but it seems that there are some people who say this thing works. I will try it out this weekend probably, but I was wondering if anyone else has actually tried it.

... it seems that there are some people who say this thing works ...

There are also people who swear they have been beamed up from their Alabama trailer park to the mother ship.
