How is a Wine’s Score Determined?

You Asked: I have seen the rating scale, but there are no specific criteria, such as age, cost, type of grapes, etc., listed as to how the rating is determined. I am curious to know what specifically is used (besides taste) to determine where on the scale the wine is placed. ~KC

Our reviewers assign ratings to all wines using the following scale:

Classic 98-100: The pinnacle of quality.

Superb 94-97: A great achievement.

Excellent 90-93: Highly recommended.

Very Good 87-89: Often good value; well recommended.

Good 83-86: Suitable for everyday consumption; often good value.

Acceptable 80-82: Can be employed in casual, less-critical circumstances.

Wines receiving a rating below 80 are not reviewed.
