Did you find it? Hint...QPR

Posted by Philip James, Oct 3, 2007.

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.

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.

Thanks
