Bottle Shock, 2008: Lovely scenery but distinctly light-weight, with a pronounced hint of shmaltz on the nose and not very much relationship on the palate or the memory to the variety or events portrayed. Lovely scenery, but wanders more than a bit too far afield from realities. Portrays a blind tasting but it doesn't help much that everyone knows in advance who and what is going to "win". Lacks depth, breadth or length. See now if at all. Score 74.
