COS

Abbreviation for the classical method of three quality criteria in a wine tasting (see there for a complete list) or wine evaluation, which was already described by the Roman poet Horace (65-8 BC). The evaluation includes the three criteria colour = colour, odour = smell and sapor = taste. The so-called hand method is similar.
