How to Score to Wine

In general; tasting, interpreting and scoring wine is unique to the individual.  At Wold Wine Groups, LLC we encourage implementing your own system.  We have chosen a 50 to 100 point system based on Robert Parker's Scoring. We chose this simply for ease of rating and comparing scoring from multiple individuals and groups. 

96-100:
An extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic wine of its variety. Wines of this caliber are worth a special effort to find, purchase, and consume.
 

90 - 95:
An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character. In short, these are terrific wines.
 

80 - 89:
A barely above average to very good wine displaying various degrees of finesse and flavor as well as character with no noticeable flaws.
 

70 - 79:
An average wine with little distinction except that it is a soundly made. In essence, a straightforward, innocuous wine.
 

60 - 69:
A below average wine containing noticeable deficiencies, such as excessive acidity and/or tannin, an absence of flavor, or possibly dirty aromas or flavors.
 

50 - 59:
A wine deemed to be unacceptable.
