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.

Dark red w/ a bold bouquet. Weak flavor. Slight berries, decent mouthfeel, not great aftertaste.

Purple, w/ nice clarity of color. Complex berries, spice, some oak, aromatic. Some oak, leather and tobacco. Nice finish, a sophisticated wine.

Do I like Cabernet? I guess so. This too, is drinkable. Curranty, It reminds me of something my dad would be excited about serving.
