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.

The nose is big with some decent spice, some cinnamon, and a sweetness to it. It tastes a little over-ripe, but it's still somewhat enjoyable due to the body/mouthfeel and spice.

I would say it's more of a food wine than a sipper, that could stand up to heartier comfort foods such as a beef stew.

A lovely wine that I have no experience with, but I'm going to change that, and soon.

This wine rocks. Rose petals and raisin on the nose, but the power of this wine doesn't come thru until you unleash it on your tongue. Bam, huge spice and roundness on the palate that tosses and turns..... then melts away.

There's some background on this wine that I won't bother you with, google "Amarone" if you're interested. Enough to say that the harvest/fermentation process of this wine is not typical and obviously creates remarkable wine.

This wine was decanted for 2 hours before drinking.
