Parker "100 point system" for wine ratings

Robert Lauriston | Aug 13, 2006 07:04 PM

I'm not sure many consumers know it's actually a 50-point scale, from 50 to 100.

50 existence
5 color and appearance
15 aroma and bouquet
20 flavor and finish
10 overall quality level and/or potential for improvement

A glass of dishwater would get at least 50 points.
