More Comments on my 10-Point Wine Scale – James Melendez

I recently saw someone turn one of my reviews based on my 10-Point scale and moved the point to the right–hence going to a 100-Point scale.  I am fine totally fine with that and I understand why this was done.  I think many people reading reviews are use to the 100-Point scale.

I have kept to my 10-Point scale as a point of difference.  I do contend that my scale is logarithmic and that each progressive tenth of a point is more difficult to achieve then the next.   I keep all of my wine scores tabulated and know the average score and would be interested in those using a numbered system and to know their average–Parker is one wine reviewer that comes to mind.   I do not know of anyone who has weighted the average of many well known wine reviewers.  It would be interested to see the total average as well as by region, producer and vintage and that over time.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
