Adam Aceto's Tokaji Vintage Chart

No Stars – wine but hardly worth drinking at all
* - a positive aspects or two but more excuses that plaudits
** - solid, representative in its characteristics, room to grow
*** - good with many likable qualities, here and there room for improvement
**** - good nearing great wine with easily discernible greatness; maybe just one discernible distraction
***** - Great balance in every category; harmony in each sip. Flawless wine.
****** - Outstanding, best by far of anything you’ve ever had, could not be improved
