Cute kid, but I ain't him. And as for the correctness of my response, it is most accurate, even to the 't' of Calvary.
The host of the wedding asked the groom why he saved the "best" for last....
Jesus saved the "καλον" (good, as in morally excellent, as God is) last, which represented Himself, and His life. So, to use your word, Jesus is the 'best', and from Him, the True Vine, it comes pure, and without corruption.

Unless you are trying to convince us that the "good wine" was cheaper than the not so good wine?

Notice, nothing about "cheap" or "expensive". "Kalos" means 'morally excellent', 'worthy', 'honourable', and "ellason" means 'less than the best', lesser quality (of character) or leser in age. There is nothing inherent in these words that speak about 'price'.
