This is killing me. I hate competitions!
Well, I guess this is the price we pay for our passion (and not paying the conference admittion fee).

Well, we have waited months, I guess we can wait a few more days.

I can see why some of you get disenchanted with the Winemake Magazine Competition. It seems to be all in what judges you pull and how their tastes run. MY wines this year that I entered were as good or better than last years. Last year I entered 8 wines and won 6 medals. This year I entered 13 wines (maybe an unlucky number) and got just a bronze and a silver. What is even more mysterious is that one I entered last year I thought was good, did not get any medal. That is the one this year that took a silver! It will be interesting to get the judges notes and see who they were. Last year the judges were cold hardy specialists- I'm guessing this year they were not. I am still thrilled to enter, but hopefully this will be my last year as next year I hope to join the professional category of contests.

I agree with you grapeman. I entered several wines the are multi medal winners in other competitions, but won nothing in this one.

Also did you notice that the winemaker of the year won most of his/her highest medals for "other than grape" wines?

I am just confused on what the judges were looking for.

Yea same here. I still think they are bias to kits and not to versed on garapes, juice, concentrates, and fruit wines.

I Heard i won a silver medal for my 2008 cab franc / Merlot blend that was crushed from grapes and also a silver medal for my 2008 cab/merlot /shyra blend also from grapes . just an up date my cab/merlot syrah blend turned out to be a gold medal and not a silver medal

Although confusing, I still won 1 gold, 1 silver, and 1 bronze.
