This consists of a note about the look, smell and taste of the wine/spirit plus a comment about the conclusion.
The ratings include –
Outstanding – rare
Very Good – many fall here
Good – most fall here
Acceptable – it’s ‘doing its job’
Faulty – do not drink, run
I usually try to include something about the wine, the terroir, the viticultural or vinicultural practices that have been used to produce it, or something about the winemaker(s) in the note.
