Very interesiting; sadly as you know we dont get any of these wines in the UK.. what did happen to those samples by the way? ;-)

The wineries that I have spoken with since the review, who were covered, seemed pretty level-headed about it. I don't think scores are going to reflect prices directly in the region for some time - at least while the current lot are in control. They seem to believe that even their personal 90+ scores are more important to the region than to their own sales.

Of course this is easy to say when those are the vineyards that sellout each year already! :)

Jared...you're right. Everyone I've talked to seems pretty level-headed about it...but one never knows if that's reality.

And yes...some of the wineries who fared best sell out anyway...so their prices are already where they should be (based on supply-demand).

Between this and the large Wine Spectator feature, New York wines will receive some good exposure whether or not the scores are entirely fair for every single wine. To those who were previously unfamiliar with New York wines, the Finger Lakes and Long Island have now entered their wine lexicon. I'm sure the effects of this kind of exposure will have some great long-term benefits.
