Every wine reviewer sees wines differently and each has his own system for rating them. We think it is more meaningful and helpful for our site visitors and members, to access the impressions of two of Canada’s top independent and most respected wine critics - each with his own subjective views about a particular wine. That way, you can take into consideration not only the winery's description of a wine - but also those of two independent reviewers. This will help you more fully visualize the true nature of a wine - and compare it against your own taste profile.
Tony Aspler and David Lawrason taste all wines proposed for our site, and their descriptions of and ratings for each wine they recommend are then posted on our site on every wine page. Reviews are never altered. Only wines that David and Tony recommend are listed on our website, except for new releases not yet tasted. Our ratings are: G = Good (80-84), VG = Very Good (85-87), VG+ = Very Good+ (88-89) and OS = Outstanding (90+). A Wine Profile Sheet with these reviews and ratings is included with every CLUB wine shipped.
