Wine Spectator never cites reviews from other critics. And we do not permit other wine writers to post Wine Spectator reviews, except with explicit permission. You can find our policies regarding the use of our reviews here: http://www.winespectator.com/d.../show/id/ratings_use
Unfortunately, there's a lot of unauthorized use and it's difficult to police the internet. However, Natalie Maclean has agreed to remove all Wine Spectator reviews from her site.
I never suggested that Wine Spectator cites reviews from other critics. What I was referencing was the article that stated Natalie Maclean's website was citing reviews from other critics, including those from Wine Spectator.
The reason why I mentioned your name was that, as Executive Editor of Wine Spectator, you probably knew about this issue and were taking appropriate action.
Regardless, I wanted to post the link to the blog and situation because of the number of Canadians (and specifically Ontarians) on the forum that would find this of interest.
Right, sorry if I gave a wrong impression; my reference was to other posts in the thread. I do appreciate it when readers bring these situations to our attention; we can't keep up with everything.
The same applies, by the way, to cases where restaurants who have won awards from Wine Spectator for their wine lists may have misrepresented what they actually offer their customers. We appreciate assistance in ensuring that we maintain our standards.
