I do my best to rate wines based on objective factors like complexity of flavors, overall balance and structure, etc. These are my own scores and evaluations based on my palate and what I might smell or taste can and will be different from others. I will try and explain why I might like or dislike a wine, but again these are just my own subjective opinions. Industry analysts estimate that at least 75% of all wines produced are never rated by any wine critic! So let’s get to work on that 75%!!
