Exhaustive but with flaws
A massive work describing more grape varieties than most of us imagined existed. But there are a couple of flaws. For one, the DNA analysis is not real good - they cannot tell Pinot Noir from Pinot Grigio! Any beginning wine taster can do that blindfolded. They need to expand their markers to fix that. And the choice of which grape to list among closely related is very strange. Zinfandel outproduces Primitivo by a large margin, and it outproduces Crljenak by a large margin. And nobody produces Tribidrag. But, since these are closely related grapes only one can be documented. Yeah, they chose Tribidrag. Really?
