    That's a great idea, anyone near the Tustin/Santa Ana area that would want to help a rookie out?

    Went to hit this up last week, walked out with a basket full of Double Bastard ale.

    Can't complain though.

    he'll hit on occasion, but he and i very rarely see eye to eye.

    my advice is to grade his ratings on a serious curve.

    What do you think about erobertparker.com?

    His maturity rating et al. of one of my bottles compared to others from different years confuses me.

    That LA Times article confused me:

    As the company cellar master, Wong tastes close to 3,000wines a year
    Altogether, he tastes close to 8,000 vintages a year,
