About Our Wine Grading System

Since the number system seems to be inconsistent for us, I'm going to start using the old fashioned school system. A, B, C, D & F.

We could never agree what number "barely drinkable" should be and I don't think it was translating well to the blog either. Barely drinkable should probably be a D to a C-. An F graded wine gets poured down the drain -- literally.

I'm not going back and re-rating all those wines previously blogged, that would be too much like work. Going forward though, it's the new system. I hope everyone likes the new letter grades as much as we do.

A side note on buying a wine again: We take into consideration how much we liked it with dinner and how it drank to the bottom of the bottle. We also put a heavy emphasis on price. With all that factored in, sometimes a lower rated wine ends up on the buy again list, while a higher rated wine doesn't.
