Two Buck Chuck: Vindicated Again?
The San Diego Union Tribune has conducted its own blind tasting to see if their panel could sniff out Two Buck Chuck. The six member panel tasted 6 wines and placed Two Buck in 4th place out of the 5 wines given scores; the sixth was found to be corked. What does this tasting say about Two Buck? Well the last placed wine was the Alexander Valley Vineyards 2001 Syrah. At ten times the price ($19.99USD) of Two Buck this wine shows once again that spending significantly more does not guarantee quality. Is it any wonder that wine novices gravitate to Two Buck Chuck?
