Robert Parker says NO to high alcohol wines!


Wine critic Robert Parker says soft, fruity, high alcohol wines are out and will no longer receive scores in the 90s. Mr. Parker admits he was wrong all those years.

Besides that Mr. Parker says he's fed up with the whole points system of rating wines.

Says Parker, "I gave 100 points to Petrus and now it sells for $4,000 a bottle. What did I get out of that? Nothin'. I'm sticking with the Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc I found at the grocery store for eight bucks. I'm afraid to rate it because the price might go up to twenty."
