  1. Question: Are the top ten the results of your havding tasted them this last week? If not, what’s the routine?

  2. Tom, yes, the top ten are my highest scoring wines of the last 7 days. The only complicating factor is that sometimes there are “tied” wines from the same winery, i.e., let’s say 2 or 3 different single vineyard Pinots from the same winery. Sometimes I might mention them as “also see” and sometimes I don’t. I choose the one I think deserves the attention.
