Scores and Their Meaning

The scores are then translated onto a modified 100-point scale. We think the five "bands" below more accurately reflect the quality of products in today’s market. It roughly corresponds to a five-star system:

96-100--Superlative (Platinum Medal)

90-95--Exceptional  (Gold Medal)

85-89--Highly Recommended (Silver Medal)

80-84--Recommended (Bronze Medal)

less than 80--Not Recommended  (No Medal)

Best Buy. Wines or spirits which provide uncommon value.

Cellar Selection. This is a wine that we believe will improve significantly with at least three to five years of age.
