    Default Wine-tasting Contests are Bullsh!t

    Wine-tasting: it's junk science | Life and style | The Observer

    "Colour affects our perceptions too. In 2001 Frédérick Brochet of the University of Bordeaux asked 54 wine experts to test two glasses of wine – one red, one white. Using the typical language of tasters, the panel described the red as "jammy' and commented on its crushed red fruit.

    The critics failed to spot that both wines were from the same bottle. The only difference was that one had been coloured red with a flavourless dye."

    This gives me a great deal of relief.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    There is a big difference between quality wine and not good wine. A lot of those medals are being awarded to mediocre wines, so I can see how this guy's studies would be accurate. Those "experts" aren't really experts. In my experience, all it means when a wine has those medals on it that the stuff is probably not horrible. It doesn't mean it's good. There are people like Janice Robinson and Robert Parker that publish ratings that are trusted in the industry. It's just the opinion of one person and it's a thing related to personal taste, but their ratings are trusted for a reason. I think some of this depends on what you are in the mood for. One day, I can think a wine is the best one I've ever had. Then I try it two years later and am not as crazy about it. Then, I have it a year again later and think it's really good.

    This is true of much upper-class cultural expertise.
