In my Corkscrews Reviews, I list at the end of each review the ratings that were given for a wine if it was rated by, Robert Parker, www.erobertparker.com, (RP),  Wine Spectator, www.winespectator.com, (WS),  Wine Enthusiast,  www.wineenthusiast.com, (WE) or my rating, Corkscrew Reviews, (CR).   Robert Parker, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast all rate on a 100 point scale where, 95-100 is a classic, a great wine, 90-94 is outstanding, a wine of superior character and style, 85-89 is very good, a wine with special qualities, 80-84 is good, a solid, well made wine, 75- 79 is mediocre, a drinkable wine that may have some flaws, 50-74 is not recommended.  My scale goes from 1-5, and is based on a combination of drinkability and value.  A 5 is a great wine both in price and it has a knocks your socks off taste, 4-5 being a very special wine, 3-4 is a good, solid wine to be consumed as a everyday type of wine, 2-3 is something you bring to a party and drink  the wine others brought and not confess you know anything about the wine you brought. (just kidding), 0-2 is just so bad that you pour it down the drain.  Now every one has their own palate, I express what I like, so that’s where the comment section comes in.  If I recommend a wine I like or one I hate and you feel different then I would like to hear about it, that way we all can go through the learning process. I will also state what food groups go best with the wine that was reviewed to use as a guide. My goal is to find wines that I hope others will enjoy, to explore different types of wines from many countries and if they come at a good price all the better.            Enjoy.
