Wine Ranking – Red Only

All | Red | White | Sparkling

My “BFWR – Ben Franks Wine Rating” system allows you to compare the quality of wines, with price taken into account, with other wines I have reviewed. Generally speaking, Below 50% is a poor wine, 50-60% is ‘Acceptable’, 60-70% is ‘Recommended’, 70-80% is ‘Impressive’, 80-90% is a ‘Outstanding’, and 90-100% is reserved for only the greatest wines.
