The quest to find the top inexpensive wines, and get a buzz in the process.
After rating wines for a few months now, I've found it very complicated to rate my Under $10 wines on the same scale as more expensive wines. Hopefully, this chart shows how an "OK" expensive bottle is comparable to the best cheapo bottles. Or, how a mid-range Under $10 bottle could go down the drain if someone had expectations of a mid-range $20 bottle.
In a nutshell, less expensive wines can get a higher ranking due to their "value" play.
