Of all the comments and exchanges I had with readers at the New York Wine Experience, these three surprised me most.
One reader approached me at one of the Grand Tastings to complain about ratings—not low ones, and not high ones, but ones that weren’t high enough. He said one 94-point Napa Valley Cabernet had been underrated. You rarely hear that.
A close second was the reader who upon tasting a $150 super Tuscan described it as “cheap,” as in, affordably priced. You rarely hear that either.
Visiting with Lamberto Frescobaldi, the subject of hot wine markets came up and for him the hottest market for fine wine buyers now is Moscow, something I would never have guessed.
