Time to Share a Bordeaux

In our capacity as an observer of the wine industry, CORKZILLA tries not to take sides, and in the case of the lawsuit by Robert Parker's (pictured at left) Wine Advocate wine ratings newsletter empire against former correspondent and heralded wine rater Antonio Galloni (made public this past week), we will continue that tradition. But it is worth noting that both sides work in an industry that champions the power of a couple of glasses or just the right bottle to ignite a meeting of the minds, either intellectually or socially. On that note, we'll provide some takes on the news from a few outlets we enjoy:

- Decanter magazine offers a lengthy take with some interesting perspectives from those in the industry and impacted by some of the allegations found in the lawsuit.

- Crack San Francisco Chronicle wine writer Jon Bonne summons a prior life as a legal reporter to ask a few worthwhile questions based on the lawsuit.

- Finally, The New York Times weighs in, following up on a recent post about Galloni's departure, and blog The Daily Meal adds its .02 cents.
