Announcing The Edward Bulwer-Lytton Award for Online Wine Writing

There’s a new sheriff in town, checking out the Parker wannabes, pros, bloggers, and amateurs.

For “Dark and stormy night” tasting notes that go beyond pretentious and snobby to downright silly and useless, the competition is fierce.

Today’s Nominee:

Wine Enthusiast 91 points, quoted by http://www.wtso.com

“Quite light and restrained on the nose, this bottling from Richard and Thekla Sanford shows pithy Key lime and scratched grapefruit-skin aromas. There is a decent sizzle of acidity to the palate, with lime rinds, pith and juice playing together. Touches of almond and flint add interest.”

Does this qualify as a “pith-poor” or pithy description?

Please vote.
