You can buy wine at $5.00 per bottle and sometimes it is OK. You get into the $30 plus and it is special, but it takes time to appreciate. At $100/bottle, it is narvana. I have owned Mastercrafts (4) since 2000. Each one was huge leaps above their replacement. I just walked around my 2014 X-10 for the first time and was blown away. The build quality was awesome...but the features...they are incredible. The price of these rigs is crazy...but when you add up the features over my 2006, they are working cheap. The cost of ownership of my 2006 was very reasonable after I sold it. I hope my 2014 will be the same. In any case, you have to own some of these boats to appreciate what they are doing today. For those on the fence, this is a great company with a great product. Like a good bottle of wine, sometimes you have to develop your taste buds to appreciate...but I could not be happier with the final product and the company that produced it!!!

I was actually trying to decide between Tahoe and Bayliner, but chose the latter because it seems to be the favorite "punching bag" on this site.

Since we are talking wine, I would add Dariousch Cabernet, Lewis Cabernet, ZD cabernet, Provenance cabernet, and Hall cabernet to that silver oak reference...oh, not to forget Joseph phelps...

I've been to 4 or 5 Wine society dinners where they pare select wine to food and have the wine makers present along with the dinner sponsor. <-- I am innocent bystander in awe of the knowledge base and will be the first to admit I am a novice. Here is my list of my personal favorites, most of those I will never forget and will continue to buy... some of which I will dream of and some of which I dream of constantly....

Favorite drinkers:
Dalia Reserve (Pinot) $$ = Bev mo branded Testarosa
Meiomi (Pinot) $$ = get it at safeway
Banus (Chard) $$ = Bev mo
KJ Reserve (Chard) $ = Bev Mo
Frank Family (Chard) $$$ = Bev Mo
Rombauer (Chard) $$$ = Bev mo

Harder to find drinkers:
Twelve (Pinot) $$$ = www.josephgeorge.com/‎ <-- I often send wine baskets from here for work, know the owner & his wife.
Paul Hobbs (Cab) $$$ = www.josephgeorge.com/
Duck Horn (Three Palms merlot) $$$$ = www.josephgeorge.com/‎

All time favorite Collectable:
2005 Ridge Cabernet $$$$ = I sometimes dream about this wine.

Box white wine, very boat friendly, can throw in some ice cubes to keep the chill goin. But only after the PBR runs out.

Who doesn't? Haha.
No glass on the boat unless someone brings a rack of Corona or Dos Equis, or forgot to fill the Nalgene bottle with whiskey in the morning, or.......who am I kidding drink what's available. After 5 or 6 it's not about quality anyway, hahaha.
$70'k wakeboat and a cooler full of Lite, pbr, and jack is how it's done anyway!:D

OK ... I have just seen one of the most incredible wine cellars ... Ever ... Restaurant in San Anton Austria ... They predominately have Bordeaux wine ... But in 12, 15 or 18 liter bottles ... Unreal
