Are you into wine? Like really into wine. Like can you pick out the exact flavors and scents that a wine has? How about the year it was made? Because apparently that is a thing that is possible.

This is a documentary about a few guys who are getting ready to take the highest level wine test to become 'Masters'. That'll basically give you an amazing career. This looks way harder than most of the stuff I've ever studied for. Apparently there are a total of 229 masters in the history of this organization since 1973.

It is really interesting seeing how these guys study, how they interact with each other, and how stressed out they get. Honestly, I don't really like wine that much. I have no idea what they're talking about most of the time with these specifics, but I still find it extremely interesting. I just need a wine master to help me pick out something good.
