Scoring wines

This site uses both Points and Ranks to score wines. Points are based upon the 100-point system. Ranks are brackets based on three stars corresponding to: Gold, Silver, and Bronze typically found in wine competitions.

3/3
An excellent, top-end wine of the region that is worthy of note and possibly enjoying on its own, cellaring, splurging, having for a special celebration, etc.

2/3
A very good wine, but just short of being one of the absolute top wines of the region. Elegant and well-made, wines of this score often represent an excellent quality/price ratio.

1/3
Nothing mind blowing, but nothing to object to either. Well-made with no defects and perfectly fine for every day, enjoyable drinking.

0/3
Reserved for wines of 84 points or less which would normally not be reported upon, but will be included in certain circumstances.
