If your wine has W.A.F.T. then it is beautiful and delicious!
There are a million different ways of evaluating wine – point totals, grades, puffs, stars, thumbs-up, thumbs-down, you name it. Each of these methods is an imprecise way of trying to encapsulate what is good (or not-so-good) about a particular wine.
With W.A.F.T. (Wood. Acid. Fruit. Tannin.) there are no scores or grades. There is only Yes or No.
W.A.F.T. is about balance, about all the fundamental elements of a wine working together to create harmony and deliciousness.
W.A.F.T. is a great way of thinking about wines because it is not a static measure (it’s not a measure at all!). W.A.F.T. is not subject to appellation, variety, or vintage but is an individualistic way of thinking more deeply about what it is you are drinking and hopefully gaining more pleasure from it at the same time.
Next time you drink a glass of wine, W.A.F.T. a little, too!
