Scoring wines

Points based upon the now-classic 100-point system are used here for those who want it as reference but Ranks are also used and are based on three stars corresponding to: Gold, Silver, and Bronze typically found in wine competitions.

***

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

**

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.

*

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