Tasting notes will help you make informed buying decisions. We also have our own wine rating system. We often include scores and reviews from the world’s leading wine critics to provide an unbiased recommendation of our wines. These reviewers include:
Parker's Wine Advocate is the world's most influential wine publication and is renowned for its consistency and independent views. A score in the 80s indicates an average to very good wine; a score of 90-95 points indicates an outstanding wine, while a score of 96+ is reserved for an extraordinary wine.
The Wine Spectator is an American periodical. Its tasting notes and scores are highly regarded in the wine trade and by American consumers. Wines are tasted “blind” to ensure objectivity. Scores in the 80s are reserved for good to very good wines; 90-94 for outstanding, and 95+ are deemed classic.
