Hmmmm. I wonder what he's afraid of...

It's literally impossible to be impartial when you're tasting at a winery. For one, you have all the aromatic interferance from the production area, as well as the tasting room. When you seriously want to taste wine for blending purposes or other reasons, you have to get them out of the production area in order to judge them correctly.
The influence and pressure of the ownership/winemaker can also be quite accute, making impartial observation impossible. Any tasting evaluation done at a winery is suspect IMO - so kudos to you for not giving in.
