I should add the tasting grid:

These links are to tasting grids that a professional would use to describe a wine's characteristics.

DH brought home a six pack of New Belgium Juicy Watermelon lime ale. It's crisp and light. Not fruity. I rather like it.

I've had some really good $4 wine especially from Chile. It's hard to tell the difference between wines, I've had some expensive wine that was very strong and not my taste

SIX-pack? ALE? I thought we were talking about wine, not beer.

Same that's why I buy the cheapest wine I can get because it'll all taste the same.

I'm drinking Frontera Cab/Merlot as my 'go to' wine: $8 for a 1.5l of $4 for a normal bottle. It's great. When I drink a good $10-$15 bottle of wine I definitely can taste the difference. Jumping up to $50? It's better than the $10-$15 bottle but not worth the premium.

However, I don't believe you can't even taste the difference between a $2 and $200 bottle of wine. It might not be worth it, but there's definitely a difference tasting a properly aged wine.
