There has been much chatter on some Web boards on this topic. Here's a representative snippet from Squires's BB:

No, but what I've tasted of the 2001 Cabernets has been pretty good. I was stunned to hear that WS rated the 2001 BV GdL in the _60s_! I haven't tasted it, but I had a bottle of the 2001 BV Rutherford tonight and liked it well enough to give it mid to high 80s. How could the GdL possibly score a couple of decades _lower_?

James Laube has been cantankerous and capricious, but it's gone too far for me.
WS Online is now subscription-only - and I'm not paying. I have a WS print subscription because someone gave it as a gift, and I won't be renewing. The editorial slant of that historically fine magazine has gone way off-kilter and they're rapidly losing credibility with me.
I get my wine-rag fix from Wine Enthusiast now. If James Laube wants to me email me ( snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com) and arrange lunch (we don't live far) to explain his case to me, I'll pick up the tab.

Well if you bought an advertisement in W.S. not only would you get lunch, but it will be highly rated as well. ;-)

To add, I think Parker is more in line with my taste. But, hands down if you like California the California Grape Vine is GREAT! No adds, just great tasting notes. With me if CGV rates anything 90 or above, I have liked it everytime.
WS is only good for the articles regarding cooking and traveling, other than that its just fluff....

I've seen the California Grape Vine referenced a number of times but have never been able to locate the source, even with Google. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks.
