TOKYO WINE SOCIETY TASTING

Best Red Wines TWS Has Chosen

Friday, September 13, 2002

@ We have tasted red wines we ranked top during our previous tasting events.  Some Vintages was not the same, but 2 from France, 2from Australia, 2 from USA, and Italy, NewZealand and Portugal were found and selected.   As the result, scores of all wines were fallen within very narrow range. The difference of the score from Rank 1 to Rank 9 was just 45 points. This means only 5 of us did not like the wine, that will make a change of the Rank from the top to the bottom. It might be necessary to point out this Ranking might just represent individuals preference of the grapes.
