I really do try to understand why some people rely so much on wine critics. As if one person’s taste could be the same as yours, and everyone else’s! Have you ever gone to see a movie that some critics loved, but you walked out, shaking your head, thinking: “Why did I just waste two hours watching that?” It’s the same with wine. I taste a wine that I think isn’t worth the bottle it’s in, and I find that some exalted writer has given it a high rating. Or, I’ll taste a wine that sells for $25 and know that it’s really worth about half that ... and, again, read a stellar review of it somewhere. How about the time that one well-known wine critic told everyone to mortgage the house, raid the saving account and buy, buy, buy as much of one newly released wine that they could get their hands on. Two days later, the wine maker recalled the wine, taking back and destroying every bottle. The wine had become infected with brettanomyces, a type of yeast infection, which made the wine smell like Read more »

I mean, I could get a Leoville Poyferre 1990 for about the same pric... Read More
