Thread inspired by the Pax email regarding 100 points for the Sonoma Syrah. I see this wine got 100 points from Galloni, who I know was at WA and has been doing is own thing for awhile now. What I don’t know is - does this mean this $48 wine will be $200 in a year or two? I know the Bedrock Weill a Way trio’s, with 100’s from RP himself, are trading close to $300 per from about $60 each on release. So RP still moves the market - and perhaps WS just given their prevalence across the industry (not as familiar with who they’ve got covering what regions these days).
So - I know who may move wine for YOU - critics with whom your palate aligns, but for the winemakers and those ITB here, now that Dunnuck, Suckling, Galloni, etc are all doing their own thing, which critics really move wine these days?
