"The only bottles I ever get are either great bottles meant to impress or those brought by wine-challenged people who have absolutely no idea: B. V. Coastal. ........ I put them in the closet marked "cooking wine" (page 7)
He calls the wine column of the Wall Street Journal by Gaiter and Brecher "two nincompoops" (page 31). I happen to like their advice.
He is a strong advocate for hiring a company to organize your wine cellar for you... and he owns just such a company.
And his comments that no wine under $50 a bottle seems worthy of a wine cellar... I only know what I like, but I have had some very good wines that were $12 a bottle... on page 86 his interpretation of the wine point scale states that anything 86 or under, it would be better to drink a beer. Mr Smith seems like he knows wine... to the point he thumbs his nose at anything that doesn't meet his snobbish expectations. Perhaps his book should be titled "How to be a Wine Snob in 152 pages"...
