Chronicles the rise of Robert M. Parker, Jr., the world’s most influential and controversial wine critic, who, over the last 25 years, has dominated the international wine world.

Yet he stands at the center of a heated controversy. Here, McCoy gives readers an authoritative insider’s view of the eccentric personalities, bitter feuds, controversies, passions, payoffs, and secrets of the wine world, explaining how wine reputations are made, how and why wine critics agree and disagree, and tracking the startling ways wines are judged, promoted, made, and sold today.
