    Awesome info. At first I thought Branaire Ducru and
    Was thinking the tasting must be rigged, then realized it was Ducru Beaucaillou.

    Lovely results, I would love to participate in the NYC blind tasting comparison. http://www.tomswineforum.com

    Add a kiwi please eg Stonyridge Larose, Sacred Hill Helmsman or Te Mata Coleraine. They have performed well in comparative blind tastings of this type in the past

    Just to make it clear and unbiased we are not talking about the “World’s best cabernet blend”, but rather the best cabernet blend out of a 30 wines panel (not even 0.001% of the World’s cabernet blend). Not quite the same thing.
