Why play EvaluateIt!? You'll gain confidence! Let’s face it: wine ratings are just a way to get you, the consumer, to buy wines and buy the magazines that rate the wines. When you develop the skill to rate wines yourself, you’ll gain the confidence to judge for yourself whether a wine really merits the high rating awarded by a magazine. There are hundreds of thousands of wines available to consumers; why limit yourself to the few thousand that the wine magazines have evaluated?
