Every wine publication from the wine insprctor , James suckling to Decanter or Gambro Rosso has something in mind when they rank a wine in the upper stratosphere.
Any wine rated 90 to 94 points defines as “Outstanding: A wine of superior character and style.” 95 to 100 points means the wine is “Classic: a great wine.”
Critics will say that wines at this level often offer beautiful expressions that are specific to that wine varietal.
In fact, tasting wines rated at 90 points or more is a great wine education, because there are commonalities. These are what critics call balanced wines, with no part — oak, tannins, fruit — jutting an elbow out into your palate.
Style and grace wrapped up in a beautiful package — that’s a 90-point wine ready to pour and enjoy. If you would enjoy the convenience of having 90+ rated wines delivered to your door, we invite you to try our Platinum wine club.
