We've had an insane week here at Pour Favor what with the Boston Wine Expo winemakers and other exhibitors in town. It's weeks like this I am grateful for the folks in my network who find juicy tidbits online and forward them to my attention, just checking to be sure I haven't missed them. It's a great way for me to ensure I've got my finger on the pulse of what interests other people, too. So this week, enjoy these two "fan favorite" articles! First up - Tasting is as Tasting Does, aka "My Rating? I Like It!". Check out this great piece by Katy Mclaughlin over at the Wall Street Journal. This is precisely the kind of thing I'm talking about when it comes to picking out a wine (more on that Monday!).

Next - Now this is something I might have benefited from this past week myself (if only it also had protein and electrolytes!): a liquid Palate Cleanser. Check it out!

Would you be more likely to purchase a wine if it had a "Fan Favorite" thumbs up, rather than 90+ points?
