However, one can't say that bordeaux, loire, chilean or marlborough sauvy is better than the other until the sauvy drinking masses dictate through sales what their preference is.

Confused
The two are entirely unrelated.

What do the preferences of the drinking masses have to do with quality? By that logic, some winner of American Idol is a better musician than someone who can actually sing or play an instrument. Surely you wouldn't make that argument.

Years ago, Monetery Vineyards used to produce a Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc that was wonderful. I don't know whatever happened to the winery.


Just one more sip.
