Interesting dialogue (tweets) between two wine writers and tasters on Twitter regarding the true value of the Tasting Note between American Howard G Goldberg (New York Times plus) and English Stephen Brook (Decanter).
@StephenPBrook: Mine clutter up my computer until summoned forth to do their duty. With age they atrophy, as indeed they should. @howardggoldberg:Exactly. The next question troubling me: Given the subjectivity of tasting notes, are our Everests of notes almost debris? @StephenPBrookLimited but not worthless, though it does depend on the critic – and the wine. That doesn’t get us very far. @howardggoldberg: If a critic comments on a ’13 book, the book’s the same in ’16. What’s the value in ’16 of a wine critic’s ’13 review of a maturing ’11?
