As of March 2008, to give the tasters more flexibility and describe the wines more accurately, we are changing the score ranges we use for unfinished wines to rolling four-point spreads. For example, one wine may be scored 85-88, another 87-90, another 89-92. We believe this will better reflect the subtle differences between wines, and give our readers better information for their buying decisions.
