100 Point Rating Guide

96-100 Extraordinary A wine of finesse, complexity, and expression. True to variety and region. Perfect balance of flavors with a long finish.
90-95 Excellent True to variety and region, with terrific complexity and balance. While not a wine for the ages, a superior example.
85-89 Good Meets your expectations, with sound flavors and balance. Might have limited complexity or be short on the palate. A sound wine.
80-84 Average Drinkable, might not have as much varietal character. Simple flavors, no flaws, but nothing special.
75-79 Below Average Might contain one flaw, simple straight-forward flavors, off-balance, unpleasant.
60-74 Undrinkable, Flawed Contains significant flaws. Unpleasant, not commercially acceptable.

Did a double take when I took the first sip just because others at our blind tasting were saying it was really good. I didn't see the "really" in the "really good", but I'm no pro. Bold and spicy though.

Sexy complex nose; deep and inviting. Really exciting, great additional complexity. Stimulating rewarding palate. Top drop!

Much too astringent even after decanting. Will probably be better after a few years because acidity/fruit/oak are all relatively balanced.

Blend, 60/40. Purple. Nice complexity, smooth and opening up. Heavy meats ala steak. 1-5 years needed.

Very light cherry, smoke, and tobacco on the nose. Nice mouthfeel, balanced. Ok dry finish -- tastes salty to me.
