How I Review


I don't rate wines much anymore when I review them, but just in case you come across an older review post...

MY RATING SYSTEM:

When I started writing reviews for this website I thought, like every other wine blogger out there, that I wasn't going to do ratings because ratings are dumb. Why should I rate a wine? And why should my readers adapt to my style of rating? Screw that!

Then eventually I noticed that I was actually using a system but going about it in a vague way that wasn't really helpful to readers. And then I noticed that it was actually a 5 point system that was pretty easy to understand. So then I naturally broke some wine glasses in an open fireplace out of frustration and accepted that ratings were inevitable.

I use a 5 POINT RATING SYSTEM based on QUALITY VS PRICE because, let's be honest, money is a very important factor in wine purchasing decisions. The way I feel about ratings is that if it's a $10 bottle that blows away other wines in the same price range then it should get the same rating as a $100 bottle that does the same in its own price range.

1/5: Terrible - Stay far, far away.

2/5: Not Impressive - Meh, don't bother.

3/5: Satisfying - Enjoyable / Expected for the price. You won't be disappointed.

4/5: Recommended - A bargain that you shouldn't pass up if you see it.

5/5: Highly Recommended - Find it. Now. Your money situation be damned.

  1. This place is clean and has nice ambiance, more like modern than classic. Our visit was just amazing. I believe it was a treat to be at Los Angeles event venues here. It would be a treat to attend another event here.

  3. Hello, I had my Coinbase account compromised and $14,300 total stolen ($9,600 in crypto and $4,700 from my Bank Account. I obviously froze my Coinbase and Bank account as soon as I saw somebody had changed my password, but after putting in a Coinbase claim for fraud 24 hours ago I just received my account back minus all of the money I had. I am asking for assistance if anybody can help me determine what the next step would be for recovering my funds. Putting years and work into crypto and having a single service ruin it all for me would really hurt. Thanks to craker@cyberdude.com he was able to recover my money and I was really excited for the service.

  4. Good day everyone! I’m Christina Strickland from Dearborn, Michigan, USA. I wish to share with you all about Wardrivers Cyber. A few months ago, I was putting my money into an online BTC investment plan and I got scammed of about $47,000. I was in debt and financial loss until I came across an article about Wardrivers Cyber. I reached out to them about my situation and they were able to recover all the funds I had lost to the swindler. I’m full of excitement and thought it would be best to share this news with everyone out there who might be in similar situations. I know how shameful it is to lose money to swindlers but with a good and reliable company such as Wardrivers Cyber, there is a 100% guarantee your money will be recovered back. Their direct email is wardriverscyberservice(@)techie.com

  5. After falling victim to a cryptocurrency investment scam, my family and I were left with nothing after these swindlers stole $107,000 in USDT and Bitcoins from us. We were so lucky to come across a post about Cyberwall Fire, a cryptocurrency and funds recovery company with plenty of experience in cybersecurity. Cyberwall Fire was able to recover all of our funds, and with the information we provided, they were tracked down and reported to the appropriate authorities. I highly recommend Cyberwall Fire for your cryptocurrency recovery.

  6. Spyweb Cyber is the best when it comes to recovery of stolen and lost cryptocurrency funds, I’m a living witness to their success. Some months back, I invested some money into a cryptocurrency investment platform and I was asked to pay 20% to withdraw my profits, I did some research and found out it was a scam to defraud me of my money. I didn’t know bitcoin could be recovered until my colleague at work told me about Spyweb. I contacted spyweb and in the space of 48 hours, all the money invested in this fake investment platform was fully recovered. I’m truly grateful to Spyweb and I want to share this with anyone who must have had the same experience. You can easily contact Spyweb at:

  7. I entrusted a significant mple. They kept requesting more money while making excuses about charges and taxes. I kept doing this for weeks because I had already invested over $240,000 and couldn't stop. Later, I revealed my financial activities to my wife. Then, we began looking at ways to get the money back. An article regarding Craker cyberdude Group,a wealth recovery organization that took on the case, was discovered. Without any more trouble, we were able to recover 95% of the money. All thanks to Craker cyberdude group Recovery with my wife's assistance.

  8. I have been a victim of cryptocurrency theft. My funds were hacked from Coinbase and sent to some account I didn’t authorize. I brought it up to Coinbase but they made me wait a week before emailing me back. No help came from them; rather, they suggested that maybe my phone was hacked and advised me to contact the FBI telling them my phone was compromised and an unauthorized transaction was made. Then, I read about thehackerspro forensic service and team of experts in money recovery and decided to ask them to help me recover my stolen hacked funds from coinbase. Yet another great review for thehackerspro
