Reply to "WS Point System"

Points awarded by many sources (not just WS) have been creeping upward for many years, to the point that what used to indicate a very good wine (87-90) may be viewed by some as only mediocre in today's market. It may not be advantageous to advertise scores that are lower than 90. Sad. Scores given out by some critics have lost credibility as a result but the impact remains that the average person going into a store sees lots of cheap wine with 90+ scores nowadays. Why would they may more for an 87 or 88, hence my comment about not pushing scores lower than 90. You may have better results focusing on other attributes of the wine than the score...
