Why Big Red Diary?

abbreviation of content plus the high cost of false attribution

No bottles to open as I’m trying to rid myself of this damn cold, it also curtailed my domaine visit plans for the end of last week. So the net result is that the Autumn Report will be abbreviated versus my plan A – 120 2007 tasting notes from 2 tastings are missing, and also 2 domaines. At least I will could reschedule the visits for December, but too late for the ‘waiting’ report. That said I’ve no excuse but to ‘crack on’ and finish it – perhaps by the end of next week…

Hi, I’m Matt and I’m…
In a twist to that ‘personal ethics’ tale. I really do have the impression that wine writer Martin Isark earns as much from his legal activities, as he does from ‘wine writing’ – that said – and whilst the initial sum discussed sounds silly, what price can you put your reputation? Unlike (apparently) Matt Skinner / his publishers, Isark, really doesn’t like the wrong attribution of his work, though the Decanter story is less than clear, I can only assume the words ‘incredible value’ were clearly attributed to Isark, otherwise there can be no case to answer. Otherwise I will sue everyone who says ‘Rebuy – Yes’ (or no, or maybe!!) 😉

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
