Wine geeks love to obsess over vintages. This is justified to a point, but I would still argue that vintage evaluations are more misleading than informative. Now, anyone who knows anything about wine, knows that some years are better than others. That's not a miraculous discovery, but most consumers don't buy years. They buy wines in a year.

Parker may give the Montrose or the Shafer Hillside Select a perfect , but he would probably give the latest version of his own app a The old version was sufficiently usable and thorough.
The reviews of many wines have not made their way to the app database yet. All systems updated on my iOS, but not a go for hundreds of reviews that were present in the prior version. For example, there is not one Opus One review to be found. The Emperor needs new app designers. The vintage charts are poorly structured - e. This is poor - North Coast could be divided in Sonoma, Carneros, Napa and maybe one or 2 others to reflect the climatic changes.
There is no back button so you have to go all the way back out to the beginning and start over again. Parker should be better than this.

Parker, Jr. Robert Parker first developed an interest in wine on a trip to France while in college studying law. In the s, Parker was influenced by the activist consumerism philosophy of Ralph Nader and saw in the wine industry a lack of independent wine criticism that was not sponsored by the distributors or wineries being reviewed. He released his first edition of The Baltimore-Washington Wine Advocate in , originally as a complimentary bi-monthly feature. Parker and The Wine Advocate first garnered international, mainstream attention for his early prediction of the superiority and quality of the vintage of Bordeaux wine. Parker's enthusiastic endorsement created a spike of interest from American wine buyers in purchasing wine futures of this vintage, prior to its release to the public. This had the effect of raising the price dramatically for Bordeaux wines.
