I was reading several Cellar Tracker members' TNs on a particular Pinot Noir and I came across the word. "Manufactured":
1) "This is a big manufactured Pinot, but pleasant on the nose..."
2) "This Pinot is manufactured to spec."

What is meant by "Manufactured" in these TNs?
Original Post
I would guess it's meant as a pejorative to indicate that it appears the winemaking was highly manipulated, instead of straight-forward.

That's kind of what I was thinking - maybe not as natural as it could be?

Yeah. Substance, or lack thereof, has nothing to do with it's value. It's where it's posted that really matters... Wink

Yeah. An unknown term from some unknown amateur. Sounds pretty substantive.

So tell us, exactly what does it mean? Not what you think it means. Razz

It means opportunity, once again, for you to whip out your keyboard protector.
For the first one I think it is what yhn said.

For the second one I was thinking it could mean textbook pinot taking the use of the word "spec" into account.

Glad you seem to find some use in random tasting notes from random amateurs. And apparently find some value in a vague descriptor that means absolutely nothing.

Good for you. Would you like some stock tips too?

Typical that you'd assume me starting off with "I would guess" indicated anything other than me thinking it vague.
Does "vague" equal "value" to you?

Since you seem to want to defend cellartracker tasting notes at every turn, it certainly begs the question.

You're always too agenda driven in your attacks to actually read what anyone is actually saying. So, even though you agree with me on the uselessness of the notes in question, you just can't help but see it otherwise and attack me. Just keep making good use of your keyboard protector...

First of all, my original response wasn't to you. I realize you have some megalomaniac personality traits and believe everything is all about you. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Perhaps my later responses to you would have been more cordial if you didn't always have your usual knee jerk reaction to defend the ridiculous and useless notes in cellartracker. Which, by the way, are the vast majority of them.

I agree this may be a good answer to #2.
For #1, it brings to mind some of the mega wineries that can put out a hundred thousand cases or more of a particular wine.

I was thinking the other way round.

#1 makes me think of an oaky Pinotfandel/Frankenpinot
#2 suggests the taster imagines that the owner said to the winemaker "I want 10,000 cases of Pinot Noir. You know the stuff; cherries and chocolate, bit of residual sugar, plenty of oak chips. We'll sell it for $9.99". It's soulless and could have come from almost anywhere.

It's not intended as a compliment.

You did see the wink, right? It's not exactly profound to guess the notes were in CT.
My original post states that the terms were from 2 Cellar Tracker tasting notes. So it certainly is NOT profound to "guess" that's where they're from.
