We have heard from several winemakers on this show, and most recently Bryan Davison from Michel Schlumberger Winery visited us to discuss his new chardonnays.  Bryan, like so many others,  spoke with such passion about his wines,  that I immediately wanted to try each one to make my preference.  When you listen to these winemakers speak about their wines, it is as if they are talking about a family member- and for the most part they are. These wines are a part of them.

On the other hand, it has been stated that you can pick a good bottle of wine from a linear equation.  Can we really break down our choices by a formula?  Check out this article (http://onforb.es/SUEZaU) and formula.  Play around with it, see if this formula holds true to what you believe you enjoy. 

I am not a numbers person, but I can appreciate this formula for what it is.  I believe that wine is so subjective, depending on your mood, season, food, smell… this list could go on for quite a while.  I'm not going to sit at a computer and work the numbers, instead I will sip and swirl.  I do believe we can take both of these approaches and find an average balance.
