Re: so who still gets wine spectator? and why?

I like it for the reviews of various areas to travel to, not for the wine recs. I do not pay either, not sure how that worked out.

I subscribed to Wine Enthusiast a couple of years ago when they had a deal of about $8 for two years. It was not a good deal.

2011 Biggio Hamina Eola Amity. Good tart cherry flavor. Good acidity, but much smoother than a few years ago. I think this wine still has time in the bottle.
