Alexander J. Pandell, Ph.D. (Chemistry) provides reliable wine information and reviews from the perspective of a scientist. Describes a numerical descriptor (not rating) system from 1-5 called CNFATE ("sin-fate") -- Color, Nose, Fruit, Acid, Tannin, and End -- and an indicator called TFR (Tannin-to-Fruit Ratio). The CNFATE/TFR system avoids the repetition inherent in describing wine with words and allows for a concise, organized, logical listing of wines. CNFATE and TFR are used to arrive at a 100 point score. See
