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.

- Alcoholic, raisins, rose petals, bitter on the finish. Soft. Earthy spice but bitter aftertaste. On the 2nd taste after open for a while, much mellower, smooth fig with blue/black fruits. Earthy. MUST decant!

- Smoky, berry, cranberry/currant. Very smooth & warming. Deep, rich best if decanted.

- Nice nose, complex. A bit hot. Favorite red.

- Potpourri. Very strong dried flowers on the nose, glue, dried clay nose, cloves, vanilla. Mild finish.

- Hot nose (alcohol). Warm all the way down. Better with time. Light, fruit, tannin.

- Really like this syrah, the only flaw is that it’s slightly watery at times.

- Nice, smoky, chalky and all around nice. A bit tart on the close.
