Although having absolutely zero experience with wine, I totally agree. I think, that applies to many areas, e.g. music. As an audiophile devotee to classical music I assume that you'll need quite a lot of time and experience to appreciate highly sophisticated works like Bach's Art of the fugue, Beethoven's late string quartets or Max Reger for example. Unlike good sandalwood or wine, this kind of music is unfortunately not even remotely comparatively appreciated by average people...(...)
On wine, sure a high end wine is universally enjoyed but I'd argue not as much or to the same level as someone with a trained palate. I think the average person would also think a top-tier sandalwood oil is a nice experience too, but imo it can't be fully appreciated without some experience either.
