1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless points, 24 Oct 2008
This review is from: Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide: The Complete, Easy-To-Use Reference on Recent Vintages, Prices, and Ratings for More Than 8,000 Wines from All the Major Wine Regions (Paperback)
The 7. edition of Parkers Wine buyer's guide has lost all of it's meaning.
The wines are only rated by points, and there are no tasting notes, no "hedonistic Parker writing" to each wine, which is essential when choosing wines for buying and ageing. You can't see the costs of the wines either, only the pricerange of the winery, which of course doesn't say anything regarding the specific wine.
The wine guide, which used to be a detailed positive list of wines to buy, is now a general description of the wineareas with an ultra short presentation of the winery.

Wine enthusiasts should still buy Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, where the tasting notes are available, but if you already subscribe to Wine Advocate this Wine Guide is money in the drain.
Buy a good bottle of wine instead!
