Upon arriving, my classy guests were asked to write down the taste, smell and look of each wine on a scale from 1 to 10, making 30 the best rating possible. The result was 243 data points from 15 raters across 14 wines. Despite a relatively small sample size, I set out to analyze the wine ratings (geek alert!) to learn if the data could give any insights.
- A Port blend scored the highest at 23.8
- Winning wines were older
- Wine "look" scored higher than "smell" or"taste"
- Consider Port more often
- “A fine wine gets better with age” :)
- We should just look at wine instead of drinking it (ha!)
Here's a summary by wine, and a summary by rater and characteristic, as well as the raw data if you'd like to geek out yourself:
