Was there much correlation between price & scoring?


As far as the Niagara flights went there was no correlation although the "best Niagara Red" award went to the least expensive wine in the flight: Arrowhead Spring's 2010 Pinot Noir. The most expensive red was a $34.95 Syrah from the same winery.

Sorry I forgot to mention the Arrowhead Spring pinot noir was listed at $17.95

Jay, price isn't a part of the equation. The winning Long Island merlot retails for $24, and was far less expensive than others in the flight. On the other hand, the LFE is $56 and one of the pricier reds we tasted.

I'm curious why you ask.

Congrats to Greg and Zander... I miss having a backyard that almost connected to PBW's vineyards.

n 2011, our list was selected from more than 16,000 new releases our editors rated in our independent blind tastings. More than 5,400 of these wines earned outstanding or classic ratings (90 points or higher on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale).
