The rows, running from top to bottom, are organized by quality of flavorfruit and spice, green and mineral, sweet, etc. If you like one element or wine type in the table, you can discover other examples situated around it you might also enjoy. The book also offers substantial descriptions of the 127 elements, or wines, each of which includes a full background and, frequently, food pairings.
