Sipping with Parker
Alder describes a very cool and unique opportunity to drink and discuss wine with Robert Parker. This dream meeting is akin to watching a movie with Roger Ebert, shooting some hoop with Michael Jordan or watching a football game with John Madden. Alder describes how he interprets and uses Parker's ratings in his own wine pursuits and how Parker personally differs from his writings in the Wine Advocate. I found it useful as I'm still wrestling with what wine writing to invest my time and money in.
