    Interesting list – there’s even some coherence to it. They’ve almost exclusively chosen the richer, sweeter, more extracted, showier, more blockbusterish styles of wine (Thelema and La Motte excluded from that description – and there are a few others I don’t know at all). It is the style that tends to do well in such tastings, of course.
