anyway you look at it, you're just gonna have to buy the wine and drink it.
Flawed? Not sure i care. I am asking for advice from people that have tried a lot more than me. I rather do that than be stubborn try to figure out everything myself, strike out and waste tons of money. Its just guidance man.
If you didn't care, then why would you bother calibrating your palate toa pro taster?
The only person who is knows what a pro taster is tasting is the pro taster himself.
Asking a 3rd party to determine trends about that pro taster's palate should be, is a rather silly exercise.
It'd be marginally more valid to ask "Tell me which taster can I just ignore"
I'd say it'd be even easier to just walk into a store that takes their wine seriously and just ask "What's a bottle that has xxxx characteristics". You can then get to know the store owner/ have a proper discussion / determine if those characteristics are really what you like / know that hte store owner probably has tasted all of it already for you / save you lotsa money for not buying anything and everything.
