Excellent opportunity to get honest & quality feedback on your wines! Getting mine boxed up :)

I've only entered one competition simply because my wines aren't old enough. The thing I did notice was the wide variation of the judges comments and scores with the same wine. It's almost like you have to get the right judge at the right time with the right varietal. I may still enter a couple just not sure yet.
 
I hope that is not true with our competition. normally during the judging there is no discussion. However if the score deviate more than three points between three judges, the wine is discussed to determine the variant and the score adjusted accordingly. We hope in this manner we weed out like/dislikes of the wine rather than judging against style and we try to overcome the experience level of the judge. Hope to see your entries there.
