Is there a current recognized standard of categorizing wine? Something
along the lines of vCard corresponding with hCard? I know there are
several different scales, it seems there would need to be some way of
relating one scale with another in order to be able to extract
information in a usable manner.

Are you thinking some other system than ratings?

I like the thinking in this. I'd love to see extractable data on Texas wines.
