From New York Times Sunday Magazine: The Chemistry of a 90+ Point Wine
'Enologix divides wine into four categories. For reds, Style 1 is pale in color and low in tannin, like most Pinot Noir or French Burgundy; Style 2 is also pale, but higher in tannin, like California Nebbiolo or Italian Barolo; Style 3 is dark and tannic, like a great many Napa Cabernet Sauvignons and first-growth Bordeaux; Style 4 is similarly dark but only moderately tannic.'
Wine & Vines: Will Napa Cabernet Become a Commodity?
Yes, when one lower price emerges as has already happened with Napa and Sonoma Chardonnays. Enologix is in a battle to support the price of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
