The Wall Street Journal recently ran a column wondering where all the 80-point wines were hiding and why people weren’t drinking them. The reporter, Lettie Teague, spoke with several wine critics and shop owners and found that if a wine didn’t score 90-plus points, it was less likely to sell. Moreover, if a critic put a high score on a wine the critic was more likely to get marketed. However, that didn’t mean wines with a B grade should be ignored. In fact, famous wine critic Robert Parker admitted that he had many B wines in his collection. Unfortunately, we now have a 100-point scale where only the top 10 points matter.
