A Brief History of Wine Ratings
Wine ratings are immensely helpful in providing us with a quick and painless guide to the questions “What should I drink,” or “What should I collect,”
The most popular system currently used to judge the quality of wines is the 100-point scale, invented by American critic Robert Parker in 1978. Since then, it has been adapted by many wine professionals throughout the world, including James Suckling, Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider), and Jeb Dunnuck.
What Do 95+ Wines Taste Like?
95 points or higher means you’re likely receiving 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.

Wine Expert Explains: Do Ratings Matter?
Marc Supsic, partner sommelier and DipWSET, shares, “Wine scores are subject to the individual palate of every wine drinker. It’s important not to let the ratings run the show and my suggestion is to look for a calculated consensus. If multiple respected wine critics are giving a wide array of high marks, you’re probably getting a nice wine. While scores and ratings are not the be-all end-all, there are some trusted sources out there that you can use as guidance as you build your skills – Wines ‘Til Sold Out being a great asset.
Remember, the best way to figure out if a wine is good or not is to develop and trust your own palate!”
