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.

Again top marks for bouquet -- really inviting, plum, mint, herbaceous. Good fruit, mild spicey lift on the palate. Finishes tad dilute.

On the dry side, slightly bitter and not well balanced. Fell flat.

Nose: isopropyl, dandelion. Taste: Way too astringent - spoiled bottle?? Sour milk, leather. Don't drink this.

Deep purple. Pepper/gamay. M/H tannins. Short finish. Smells like petite syrah. Age 3-5.

Slight musty smell. Plum/dark red fruit tones. A light and fruity taste (for cab). Dry and seems very french. (Dan R)

Interesting nose, spicy w/ cloves/anis/curry. Jam and berries on the palate. Not that great on the finish, a bit thin/sour. Everything great except for finish.
