The big difference we have with wine reviews is that we have blanches, they immediately score more for the color (i.e. translucent=10). And a lot of other differences.
And while we're on it, I do not agree with the score system, because:
1 - color/louche is 30/100 - 1/3 of the final score?
2 - aroma is 30 but taste is only 20 - which one is the most important?

My 2 cents.
