90 - 95% of my Cellartracker wines are over 90, but then today I took a flyer on a Four Vines Truant. Should of looked it up before buying. It comes in at an 80. New all time low. champagne.gif

I have one of those 70 point Hedges wines in my cellar. "A light bodied wine with almost no flavor profile. Maybe lemon water. Unpleasant chalky finish." Morning dew, yum.

Herein lies the problem with CT average scores ...

Here is the 50pt review ...

Nose of Clorox mixed with stewed roadkill, palate with the taste and consistency of diluted baby food. Are you kidding me? I keep telling myself never to buy aged Burgundy, because it's either ex-Domaine swill that didn't sell on release, or stuff that used to be good until it was stored next to the furnace in grandpa's condo for fifteen years... this is the former, so don't complain to me I should have marked it "flawed".

Here is Jeremy Holmes' review (with no score). ...
Some barnyard, sous bois and smoked meats to the aroma. The tannins have all but folded into the wine's sweet vinosity but there's still a kiss of minerally acidity. Certainly no 'vin de guarde' but really quite tasty and ready to go.

I know which one I trust more!

Interesting exercise. I have two 83s, each gifts: 2005 Shadow Canyon Cellars Syrah & 1999 Sartori di Verona Amarone, but am surprised to see them followed by 84 points for a 6-back of 2011 Haut-Bailly Rose I'm very much looking forward to trying. Not a statistically significant 84 (4 notes) but ups the ante when I pop one.

About 150 wines have no community score, but the lowest are 2005 Luneau-Papin Excelsior Clos des Noelles at 60 points, 1997 Joguet Cheney Vert at 71 points, and 2010 Puzelat KO at 74 points. I'm not concerned about any of these scores.

Here's my lowest:

2007 Domaine Monier St. Joseph Terre Blanche - France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, St. Joseph (11/15/2009)
Nose is not a good start, instant horse barn, not much else. Palate, if possible, is worse. Seems like it might be OK initially, with some dark fruit, but then a wave of acidity kicks in, not tartness, just a sickening acidity, like a bad belch that leaves the taste of stomach acid. A Kermit Lynch bottle that looked interesting in the store, but should have been dumped overboard on the Atlantic crossing.

Night 2: well the barnyard is gone (not sure how), left with some aroma of bad sweet pickels. Palat is unchanged, a core of dark fruit, but wrapped in a very unappealing acidity, I can't tell if this is somehow bacterially spoiled, or if this the way the wine is supposed to be. Oh, BTW, being biodynamically farmed didn't help this wine one bit ;) (76 pts.)

Shocked to see mine at CT77 for the 2010 TOR Kenward Durell Vyd Wente Clone Chard. I've enjoyed each TOR chard I've tried, but have not tried this one yet. 77, 75 and 94 from three separate posters. Hope my experience matches the latter.

My second is the 2009 Bedrock RRV Zin at 81.9. I fully concur with that one, as it is the only one of 89 (yikes) Bedrock bottles I've consumed that has not been a pleasure to drink and was downright undrinkable. My private CT note: "Awful; stewed fruit and pickled apples. Poured down drain."

Cheers,

Steve

2007 Chronicle Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. CT avg is 84.8, but I'd rate the two bottles I've had in the low to mid 70's. Trying to find some reason to open my remaining two bottles, but just don't ever feel like subjecting myself to it again. Yuck!

I have a few 2004 Chateau Charmant rated an 83. I think it is a solid 88+ and a great weekday wine. I have also been told they were recently purchased by Chateau Margaux and the vineyards will be part of future Pavillion Rouge offerings. I would love if anyone could verify this info. Heck I think this wine is good.

2011 Saint-Cosme Vin de Table Français Little James' Basket Press (83.5 points which I think is generous) I have five bottles and plan to use them to braise.

2000 Oriel Cabernet Sauvignon VQM. 80.3 pts on six reviews, but two from the same guy. Would have been lower but one guy gave it an 84.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!

1965 Ch. Mouton Rothschild.

One score from a guy I've never heard of . . . .
10/12/2008 - KEITH LEVENBERG WROTE: 69 Points
The American Artists with Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (Del Posto): "A terrible year, a disaster all year round," says Xavier. Hopes that this might turn into a pleasant surprise like the '74 are quickly dashed. Smells liike a cobwebbed attic; has some up-front sweetness and hasn't broken up, but there's no pleasure to be found here. I guess it's a testament to the quality of Mouton's raw materials that a wine from so atrocious a vintage would still be alive, but that's about all you can say for it.

Just my opinion, but wines older than 15-20 years old should not be scored with points.

My lowest two were both gifts.
One is a 2010 Chateau Grimard Bordeaux, with a 77.8 CT avg score and 3 ratings.
Second is a 2008 Channing Daughters Chardonnay Scuttleholewith a 78.7 CT avg score and 3 ratings.

The lowest one purchased is 2009 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Russian River Valley. I thought it was flawed, as did many others. Some apparently enjoyed it. With 30 notes, it has an 81.9 CT avg rating.

2008 Willamette Valley Vineyards PN Founder's Reserve, 83.6 points community average.

Some pretty harsh reviews drag the rating down. The bottle I opened was totally inoffensive and actually bordered on the enjoyable. Didn't rate at the time, but would feel comfortable giving it at least an 85.

This was probably the worst (non-corked, etc.) wine I've ever tasted. It was an ex-chateau bottle, at the same tasting as Keith with the Baroness. Absolutely awful. Parker, describing a different bottle, says "The odor of rotten garbage, stale mushrooms, and stewed fruit is appalling" and gives it 50 points, the lowest possible score.

On the other hand, it's only $1500 a bottle now.

I'm stumped as to how to get this data from CT. Can someone give me a simple bullet list of steps and then I can play. Since I am such a fan of scoring wines, I'd like to see what the end result is out of curiousity.

2014 Marie Courtin Champagne Efflorescence Extra Brut
2012 Minière F & R Champagne Influence Brut

Ah, nevermind, I figured it out. Here is mine, although without the weighting impact of more notes versus less (this wine has 3 reviews, with 2 ratings), not sure what value this gives the discussion.

For me it is
NV Cascina Baricchi Visages de Canaille Piedmont Rosé Blend 50 points
which is ridiculous - as I have actually had it twice and it is a more than decent wine.

Next are

2003 Ogier Caves des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Reine Jeanne
75 points

2003 Château de Mons Premières Côtes de Bordeaux
71 points

I haven't tasted either... and as such aren't really looking forward to it. Actually both were given to me as gifts [smileyvault-ban.gif]

2010 San Felice Contrada , at 84 points. Bought two bottles for 9 $ each. I think the rating is pretty accurate

Nose is not a good start, instant horse barn, not much else. Palate, if possible, is worse. Seems like it might be OK initially, with some dark fruit, but then a wave of acidity kicks in, not tartness, just a sickening acidity, like a bad belch that leaves the taste of stomach acid. A Kermit Lynch bottle that looked interesting in the store, but should have been dumped overboard on the Atlantic crossing.

Night 2: well the barnyard is gone (not sure how), left with some aroma of bad sweet pickels. Palat is unchanged, a core of dark fruit, but wrapped in a very unappealing acidity, I can't tell if this is somehow bacterially spoiled, or if this the way the wine is supposed to be. Oh, BTW, being biodynamically farmed didn't help this wine one bit ;) (76 pts.)

Ooh, I just found a 2007 Monier SJ blanc in the cellar that I didn't know I had. You won't get invited up when it gets opened. ;)

I do thank you ;) Seriously, you might as well give it a try and see if I'm completely out to lunch.

Usually I give 50 points for anything containing alcohol, but the 2007 St. Innocent Momtazi Pinot was so bad I scored it 23 points. Couldn't drink enough of it to get a buzz.

2011 Julien Frémont Cidre Pays d'Auge Brut par Nature 69 points, It's a random apple wine from Garagiste. I just picked it up last week and the color on it alone I'm pretty sure it's going to make me sick, but why not,

Next 2 are

NV Hijos de Rainera Perez Marin Jerez-Xérès-Sherry La Guita Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda 80 points, which I've actually had before and I think is a great value sherry. It's not a show stopper, but for under $10 a bottle I think it's great

Then Dois Irmaos....

Funny thing is that my highest rated wine is

2007 Señorio de Barahonda Tinto Barrica 95 points, cost me $8 bought 2, I drank one and it's just ok, but 1 guy can throw the curve in a hurry.

I know one of the most interesting wines I have in this regard is the 1990 Pavie Macquin - the bottle variation on this concoction is legendary. There are 19 notes on CT, of which 8 are 89 or better and 5 were flawed, the rest falling somewhere in between.

That mirrors my experience; on release it was very nice, probably a decent if ripely-done 90+ pointer, but as the wine has aged that bottle variation has become more and more common, with appalling levels of volatile acidity on several occasions. Given the way this thing has aged, I've often felt it was probably one of the first truly spoofilated wines ever made, although I'm sure the heat of the vintage, paired with the winemaker's desire to harvest very ripe fruit, did this wine no favors in terms of it's ability to age gracefully.
