Wine Corollary to Leff's Sixth Law

Leff's Sixth Law says: "If you're analyzing what you're eating, that means you're not eating something truly great."

Here's a corollary. At wine tastings, don't listen to what people say or read what they write. Disregard how they themselves rate and rank the wines. Tune all that out, and pay attention only to two things:

1. How much they write about each wine
Great wines provoke shorter, less analytical descriptions.

2. How much wine they've left in each glass
The empty glasses are the wines you want to know about.
