I don't completely agree with this, W+A. I don't use CT for cellar management but I think it's a great repository for my tasting notes. If I ever wonder whether I've tasted a particular wine I can easily look it up. I also appreciate being able to look up tasting notes of other reviewers I trust. It helps a lot when I'm considering buying a wine or assessing whether it's ready to drink.
You do not agree I find it has zero value to me...sorry but I'm confident in my opinion, it has zero value to me.
If I want to know what Molesworth, Parker or any other professional thinks about a wine, I google Parker+ 1990 Las Cases, and there is Sir Robert's comments.
I care as little as anyone here about points. They just do not mean much to me. What a critic said about a wine 10 - 20 years ago means what today... or a critic saying this wine will be a 99 in 25 years from today means what? This said, if I do care I look it up. If I want to know what GlennK thinks about 1989 Guigal LaLa, I search this here and there it is.
I do appreciate professional wine reports
on regions, new trends, winemaker changes etc., but again I'm one search away from that information.
Sorry you do not agree.
