The 100 Point Scoring System (from
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 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.

It is time again for an epic battle – 6 wines enter the blind tasting and only one makes it out alive. Well… actually, they all don’t make it out alive in the end. The point of this tasting is to NOT judge a wine by its label but by its quality in the glass to see whether a bargain wine can outcompete a super-premium one.
All of the wines in front of me were selected by my team. They were made from the same grape variety or varieties and they are from different parts of the world.
I don’t know what is inside those black bags, but I know that one bottle is much more expensive than the other ones. I am going to see whether I can identify the expensive bottle or maybe, just maybe the cheaper wine wins the battle. So let’s taste!
