Digital Cabernet Challenge

An interesting and illuminating experiment at the Proper Discord site: can you tell the difference between compressed and CD-quality music? I couldn't (and admitted so in the poll).

Here's another poll: try this digital Cabernet Sauvignon test.
  1. Play your favourite Villa-Lobos CD or MP3 file (I chose John Neschling's version of Choros #08).
  2. Open a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon (for me, it was a 2006 Penfolds Bin 407).
  3. Click on the video above.
So, which wine is better?  Can you really tell the difference?  Let me know!

P.S.  Note to Casa Valduga's advertising agency: next time, use Bachianas Brasileiras no. 5 as the background music in preference to Vivaldi.
