I don't agree with Robert Parker's wine ratings

I don't agree with Robert Parker's wine ratings.

I think he gives too many ratings that are too high. Not that many wines can be perfect.

I think his ratings reward only power and not balance and elegance.

I think his ratings are biased beyond his control because he doesn't taste blind.

Most of all, my taste is not the same as his. I don't like the kinds of wine that he does so his ratings do not have predictive value for me.

  1. Um, is that not what everyone acknowledges nowadays?

  2. This revelation reminds me of a Monty Python skit.

    The jest:

    Palaeontologist Anne Elk's theory on brontosauruses: "All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much much thicker in the middle and then thin again at the far end."
