There are many worthwhile ways to evaluate wines. Probably the most enjoyable is to drink them with food and friends. It’s also very instructive to taste them non-blind, knowing what the wine is and where it comes from, in order to understand its origins and character.
But if you want to be as fair and objective as possible, blind tasting is the most honest and reliable way to assess wine. And that is our methodology here at Wine Spectator. That eliminates bias, which might come from a producer’s prestige, or a wine’s price. It enables you—forces you, really—to judge a wine based on what is truly in the glass.
