Fantastic application for all wine lovers

:
A fantastic app! Some comments have said they can’t just type in a wine to get results--this is not true. You can type in the search engine to get wines that are available. Unfortunately, there are many wines not yet in the database. It seems that the Wine Enthusiast only adds wines that they have rated (not certain but it appears so through various searches). Thus, many of the cheaper ones at stores we buy are likely not rated so not in the database.

I have a mini home wine cellar with 120 plus bottles (ranging in price from $18-$130/bottle) rated 93 and up, and this application has about half of my collection available. It does not yet have the later vintages (i.e. I have a 2007 and they only list those under 2005). But it does have many of the more casual drinking bottles under $25.

The ability to add wines to the various lists (and create your own) is very useful. I often buy wine at tastings and this helps me keep track of which wines and vintages I own or am looking to buy.

Overall, a great application and worth the splurge. Would give it 5 stars if they included a wider range of later vintages.

Ummmm....

Hey developers!!! Search is slower than my old IBM 486. Why can't I just type in wines to my favorites? Or better yet, use the UPC?? Keep trying...

2/5 stars

Hard to use!!

:
On my iphone it's easier to search a wine on wikipanion than on this application. Why can't I just type in "Sancerre" or "Amarone dela Valpolicella" and get results? When I'm in a wine store and see 4-5 different sorts/years for the same wine I'd like to know which one has the better rating. That's when I would need this application to work and give me some help. No matter how extensive their database is it's really hard to find what you want.
