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 one of Canada’s top independent and most respected wine critics. That way, you can take into consideration not only the winery's description of a wine - but also those of 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 tastes all wines for our Wine of the Month Club, and his descriptions of and ratings for each wine are then posted on our site on every wine page. Reviews are never altered. Our ratings are: 80-84 (Good), 85-87 (Very Good), 88-89 (Very Good+), and 90+ (Excellent/Outstanding). A customized wine product card with these reviews and ratings is included with every club shipment.
