Format: Hardcover
I bought the "enlarged and revised" edition of this book in 1983. I have several books on wine, but this is one of the most technical. If you're comfortable with the mathematics of statistical analysis, you'll feel right at home. There are pages of formulae and charts. The authors attempt to bring greater precision to otherwise murky terms that are often used in wine tastings, e.g. "Buttery: used for an odor from malolactic fermentation. Possibly diacetyl is meant? If so, use it." This book is most useful for professional wine tasters and judges. Those who belong to tasting clubs or give medals at county fairs may not follow its rigorous approach, but it is enlightening.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Maynard A. Amerine was a professor of enology at the University of California Davis and Edward B. Roessler was a professor of mathematics. Both are experienced wine judges and between the two of them, had over a century of experience. This is a pioneering work on the sensory evaluation of wine. The first half of the book covers wines and their sensory evaluation covering the qualities of wine and their interaction with the senses of vision, odor, taste, touch, and pain. They cover various physiological and psychological factors that can impact our sensory responses and discuss various issues concerning the sensory evaluation of wine. The second half of the book covers statistical procedures and will probably intimidate all but the most obsessive reader. The information in the first half more than makes up for the denseness of the second half. I enjoyed the book and found it useful.
