Robert Parker & The Wine Advocate
So after hearing all the (still vague and unclear) news about Robert Parker and his famous/infamous publication The Wine Advocate one thing became very clear to this wine slinger....still fresh out of shits so I won't be giving one, glittered or otherwise.
Never cared, read or bought a wine because of Parker's publication, not ever, so other than clogging my news feed on Facebook and probably requiring me to avoid any if not all wine blogs for the coming weeks this "news" changes nothing for me, or the customers I buy wines for.
Off to pour myself a nice cold glass of something white, and dry from the Loire Valley....something that makes my heart thump and feel thankful I'm in this business and something Parker would likely give 84 points to.
