Don't like a review--a wine rating? Let it alone!
Wine reviewers by egocentric necessity
seem to require equally egocentric iconoclastic crusaders; think Lamprey attached to a Rainbow trout.
Certainly there are better writers, better reviewers, and those less
polemically challenged to contend for Wine Spectator,Wine Enthusiast,and all the wine reviewers (weighty or
not) than moi, but why this constant effort to deflate not only an industry,
hobby, and service, but a right (at least for now)?
For one thing,
speaking for myself, my advice is: Don't like reviews and distain scores and
those that ply the trade of quantifyingopinions,
from movie reviews to the quality of a hotel, then let it alone, but why the basically
singular and constant effort on the part of some to besmirch wine scores?
As for me and my. . .
we choose to honor those initials of ST, JS, RP, JL, and SH, etcetera, though requiring their services less and less the
more we develop and experience our own senses and before we hoi polloi
plunk-down our hard earned pesos for a wine that just might suck.
