Bastide Miraflors Vielles Vignes Syrah Grenache, 2013

Bastide Miraflors 93 points

Robert Parker is losing his mind. How in the world can he take decades of experience and proclaim a whopping 93 points on this otherwise very drinkable 89 pointer? It’s baffling. But it sells bottles, his seal of approval.  I guess the crazier the better, for the trade.

 

I can’t help but feel he’s no longer the credible wine guru and more Peter Travers at Rolling Stone whose movie reviews are often quoted on posters as “Shocking” or “Awesome” or “Powerful” all inconsequential but great for the RS brand.

 

I won’t waste time reviewing this fine it’s OK nothing to write home about middle of the road red blend which is more than palatable but hardly tips the 90 point scale. Spend $30 and see for yourself.

Market Liquidity: We called it here first.
