Wine Rating Controversy

There is quite the controversy brewing over how professionals rate the wine that they drink?  The National Post recently published an article entitled “Vintage snobbery: Are wine critics fooling us into buying pricier bottles?

Which brings me to my own wine rating systems which reduce wine snobbery and elitism to a minimum.

  1.  “Mmm, yum” get used most often in my house closely followed by the
  2. “do we have another bottle of this?” method.
  3. I have also endorsed the coliseum method – Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down
  4. And finally I have sadly used the “Plonk” rating for wines that deserve a quick death

Any rating system more complicated than these are really superfluous aren’t they?
