    For $2.99 / month you can search the rating database for a specific wine. You cannot search for general characteristics like “Napa Cabernet > 90 pts and 2007, 2008, 2009”. Additionally, there is no local database so you need a good net connection and patience. If you’re in a wine shop and don’t have a good connection (all that wine does absorb RF signals) you’re out of luck. It’s basic. And of course their brilliant marketing program means you don’t get access to the wine database on the web, that’s a separate subscription. This is strictly iPad/iPhone. I’d like an app that helps me in the store, and in a restaurant. A 10yr old California Chardonnay that only produced 300 cases is not relevant!

    Ignore all the crybaby people who complain that the app costs money. If you want value and quality, you pay for it. Obviously. You want free, crappy reviews from non-experts, have a good time. You want discussions and ratings from world renowned connoisseurs, pay for the app. On that same note, the free content has many wonderful articles and expert advice. I have removed one star because there is confusion about what content is on what source and there is no way to get an easy answer. I want to be able to have one source, pay one fee and have access to everything.

    When it worked I'd give it 4 stars. However, for the past couple months it fails to search for any wines. Also, if I tap on a wine under the top 100 picks of 2014, the wine name pops up but the content never loads; you just get the loading symbol that goes and goes and goes. Since I'm paying money for the subscription, it would really be nice if it worked. No app update or bug fixes since Jan. 2015.
