Wine BS

I know I keep posting about wine snobbery, but this is about as good as it gets:

“…the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre (45- to-95-year-old vines) aged in small oak, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of blackberries, espresso roast, ink and graphite. While clearly a modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape, it retains plenty of the region’s typicity and authenticity. It should drink well for 15+ years” (from a Robert Parker review)

The sweet bouquet of ink and graphite? As this blog says so well, this is Wine Bullshit at its best! (I have previously blogged about wine experts, among other topics on wine, here.)
