If you are new to wine competitions, there are some basics you should know when the judges evaluate your wine. Wine judges usually use a 20 point system also referred as the Davis System because it was developed by the Davis Campus at the University of California. The following is a breakdown of the point system:

  • Appearance 1 Point

  • Body 2 Points
  • Color 1 Point
  • Flavor & Balance 5 Points
  • Sugar 1 Point
  • Acidity 2 Points
