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.

Nose: tobacco, black pepper. Taste: crisp, good tart astringent + perfect for savory foods like lamb w/ garlic or roasts. I would drink this w/ a gourmet hamburger.

Tad overblown nose. Not as dilute on the palate as one would expect, needs more press wine to add structure.

Olives and brine on the nose. Overly sweet and one-dimensional. A drink-able wine, but nothing special

I like this. It tastes good. It's drinkable and changes after the first sip... gets a bit sour. This wine has a little bit of character.

Smokey, blackberry and cherry aroma. Very complex taste of fruit and spice. Smooth finnish, strong but tolerable tannins. Tastes young, but would likely age well. (Dan R)
