Jon Bonne (a writer who is widely reviled, but whom I happen to like a lot) has an interesting article/list in Punch:
in which I tells how a wine must not just be good, but it also has to tell a story. Of course, if you're reviewing wines blind...there is no story to be told.
It also has his list of his Top 25 wines of the year. Pretty much a list that you'd expect of Jon...lots of esoteric stuff...but there's a story to be told with each one. Some on that list I'm gonna seek out.
