I’ve often asserted that there is no such thing as an empirical measurement of either a wine’s quality or flavour profile. For all the pleasure one derives from wine, judgements cannot be anything other than subjective.

Leonard Mlodinow’s article A Hint of Type, A Taste of Illusion takes a fascinating look at the fallibility of humans as they judge wines. It’s well worth reading.
