Ready to review some red wines?
If you would like to submit any wines or ideas for review on The Glorious Grape, please visit my contact page for more information!
My reviews are based on a scale of 1-5, and the scores correspond roughly to the following:
1: This is gross. Down the drain it goes.
2: This is not very good. I can maybe get the rest of this glass down, but no more for me.
3: This is OK…I can probably have another.
4: This good. Like, really good!
5: I can die happy, this is wine of the gods!
Some of the major things I look for when scoring a wine are the aromas (sometimes this is more important than the taste!), QPR (quality/price ratio), the balance of acidity and sweetness, and the mouthfeel on the finish. Of course the overall taste is a factor, too!
