Amen to this. I also like Pinchas's scoring system because it allows you both to express whatever you actually think of a wine separate from the issue of QPR.
But I get very tired of the knee jerk response to a complaint of overpricing that QPR is after all subjective. Of course it is. And I am expressing my opinion on if a given wine competes with similar wines at similar prices. And sometimes it is pretty obvious.
