Is the wine in the bottle what the label says it is?

Unbeknownst to this consumer of Two Buck Chuck (now Two and Half Bucks Chuck) there are people who create fraudulent rare wines, such as bottles that allegedly belonged to Thomas Jefferson.  National Public Radio ran a very interesting piece on this phenomenon and the people who work at busting the con artists trying to pull the wool over they eyes of wealthy wine investors.

I think you will find it fascinating.
