What does Greg Majors look for in a wine?

Harmony. If the acidity level is not too great, depending on if it’s a riesling or chardonnay; the presentation of tannin; how balanced the fruit is — Is it too ripe? Is it too extracted? Is it not ripe enough? — just the structural components of the wine. Is the wine what it should be? Can you identify? Sometimes I taste the wine and it really has no sense of what it is or place — that can be done by too much use of oak; it can be done by blending another varietal in with a varietal and it simply masks what it is. I guess I look for a wine that maintains a true sense of place and what it is, and the harmony of the winemaking.
