Well, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve crossed a threshold of sorts by posting a review for a wine that I didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t like. Most times, I just skip posting these unless they are fairly high priced to warn readers. This one was different; as the wine itself did not show any flaws and is actually very well made. I just didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t like the style so this affected my notes and ultimately the score (how can I rate a wine ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œdeliciousÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? that I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t care for?) IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not sure how pros like Robert Parker and Jim Laube deal with this issue, but perhaps there is some technique of separating your preferences from the mechanics of tasting. Sort of like ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œtasting at arms lengthÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? and clinically evaluating the winesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ attributes. However itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s done, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not there yet. Maybe it really doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t matter too much either way.
