I was recently reading the NYTimes's, Eric Asimov , talk about looking for great wines under $10, and figured that we could tap the power of Snooth's database to help people with such queries. Mark was up most of last night adding a new sorting function: Quality/Price Ratio. What this tells you is which wine gives you the best "bang for the buck". Simple.
So to answer Eric's question, take a look at this search. The best wines, in-stock at one of our partners, each priced under $10 .
For those with a little more green to burn, I turned to a recent challenge thrown down by Dan Petroski of Larkmead Vineyards, when he said that "all the wines rated above us, at our level, and even a couple of points below us, have a price per bottle anywhere from $100 to $350. The Larkmead wine retails at $75. Hands down, a QPR TKO."
I put that to the test, with a search for in-stock, Napa cab's for at least $80 . The #1 result? Ramey's Larkmead Vineyard. Not a Larkmead wine, I realize, but it is made by the same winemaker, so there's something in it. Besides, if I told you that Larkmead was in fact #1, then you'd tell me I rigged it.
Finally, thank you to Jeb for getting us moving on this.
Did you find it? Hint...QPR

Nice feature, good work!
any chance of being able to sort my own ratings etc by QPR too?

We're totally redoing the myRatings page. We'll show a draft image of it on this blog soon, get people's feedback, and then see what we can work into it.
