Sample Policy:

New Policy:

Regarding Samples: While it would be an honor to accept a sample of a wine, book or product for review, I can't guarantee a positive review or even a review at all. Particularly if the wine in question is not worthy of this blog's tag-line; 

"The intersection of where great wines meet reasonable prices". 

What does that mean? Simply said; if the sample receives a score of 84 or lower than I most likely will not bother writing a review. 

Here's what I can definitely promise: Each and every sample will get a thoughtful, respectful, and authentic assessment of the product presented for the review process

Receipt of Sample: I like to wait a few weeks before I open the bottle for review. This gives the wine a chance to recover from travel, resulting in a much better assessment of the wine. 

Often times I will have more than one wine at-a-time sitting in the review queue than I can review in a reasonable [meaning it may take a few weeks longer to write the review] time frame. 

So if a timely review is needed or desired please indicate that fact with your submission or I won't know about your expectations. Once I finish the review, I will send an email/tweet/FB message to let you know that it has been posted.

Hi Alisa,

I did contact you via Gmail, while you were out. You may have missed it. That said, if you're still interested in sending samples for review, please let me know.
