THANK GOD !!!
IT'S ABOUT TIME !!!!
Helelualha !!! It's about time! Robert Parker has done more to ruin the general publics perception of what good wine than anyone in the history of the world ... Unfortunately he gained so much influence and power through his rating system which influenced winemakers into making horrible "Parkerized Wines" in order to gain high scores from Parker, a 90 or higher, thus ruining many wines and what they could be .. Thank goodness the general public is finally wising up and the younger generation is not following him that much. Maybe there's still hope.
"Maybe now, people will start drinking "Real" more natural wines. Wines not influenced by the "Horrors" of one Robert M. Parker Jr. who negatively affected the World of Wine for so long, influencing winemakers to radically change what their wines would normally be, whether a Chianti, Cot du Rhone, Gigondas, Bordeaux, or whatever. Negatively influencing winemakers and proprietors to make "Parkerized Style Wines," which are horrible manipulated monsters of wine, instead of make wines that are true to their particular terroir.
Thank God he's finally stepped down. "It's a Glorious Time For Wine" to be relived of the clutches of "The Evil Robert Parker."
