Found the '10. Had it with some oysters. Love it.
Referring to the above, and the post mentioning Parker, et. al. What is everyone's opinion on him and on Wine Spectator's ratings? Shameless PR/ Marketing or actually respected? Forgive me if ever sounding clueless but the way wine is sold in the US makes it mostly hit and miss, the incredible variety is overwhelming, and sellers mostly have no idea. I am used to purveyors recommending, then accepting returns/ compensating. It seems that most people I know here are just as perplexed and decide by price level " it has to be better because it costs more". Other than local liquor store reccomendations, what do you guys use as a referrence?
