These are fun notions [aka, straw-man] to set up and knock over, makes for great chatter around the wine bar. Frankly, this premise does not hold much sway over whether or not I like a wine and I say bah-humbug. But I'm sure those who subscribe to the notion, they find it a great comfort in dismissing wines out of hand for its ABV alone. I judge each wine on its own merit and don't draw a conclusion until after I tasted it and put it through its paces. So that's why I say to you my readers, please don't listen to these folks or give them any credence, they are nothing more than clattering gongs and noisy cymbals, making noise for noise sake.
