Wine Rating System

Sunday, June 17, 2007

All wines are rated as follows:

**

An exceptional wine. Buy it now and either tell all your friends about it or keep it very, very secret, depending on your personality and availability.

*

An excellent wine. Convince a friend to buy some and share it with you.

+

A good wine. Worth drinking. If it represents a particular value I will list it as Recommended.

.

A decent wine. Drink it if you must.

-

A flawed wine. Refuse this wine if served.


This is a deliberate departure from the popular, but somewhat harmful, 100 point system. For you addicts out there, the (rough) correspondence to the 100 point system is: ** (92-100); * (89-91); + (86-88); . (80-85); - (< 79).

  1. Janet Says:
  2. How do you factor price in your ratings?

     
  3. Janet, I don't. Wines are rated irrespective of price. If a wine represents a particular value and is rated as a '+' I list it as recommended.
