Stephen Tanzer is one of the most famous critics in the United States. He is the director and editor of the bimonthly publication "International Wine Cellars", which was launched in 1985. This uses a rating system based on a wine quality scale that goes from 70 to 100 points, being the major competitor of "The Wine Advocate" publication of Robert Parker. However, the distinguishing feature of both publications lies on a less extravagant line followed by Tanzer.
