Loving wine for about 20 years and just starting to get good at it. Drink mostly Domestic US and South America, some Spain and Australia, limited France and Itally mostly because of price. My taste seems to be in total agreement with Wine Spectator.
The "new experience" in every bottle in the same case. Any jerk can spend $100 on a bottle of wine and have it taste good but a true wine lover knows which $8 bottles drink like $14 bottles and which $25 bottles drink like $80 bottles.
