Community Tasting Note

    November 16, 2014 - I went to the tasting room and I thought it was a wonderful Malbec from Walla Walla and I can't wait to open it in a couple of years.

You say this is "wonderful" and that you "can't wait to open it in a couple of years" which makes me believe you esteem this wine quite highly, and yet you give it a 79. Most people would consider a wine rated at that number to be barely drinkable, even late in the night. What am I missing?

I've had 7H wines from grocery stores, wine shops, their tasting room, and restaurants. That's one reason I'm so puzzled. The other is that the comment doesn't seem to, in any way, match the score. Like I said, what am I missing?

When people use poor judgment and review a small production wine they can really affect the overall score. Give it a few days this review will be gone. Also the response to your question made no sense and was a rambling mess. Cheers

If Hello was a particularly hard grader, had fat fingered the rating, or had misinterpreted the scale, that would be great to know. But it doesn't appear that we will ever find out what was really going on.
