Top 100 from Wine Spectator

As you probably already know, the Wine Spectator magazine just released their "Top 10 wines of 2008" this past week. Answer me this because I find it rather amusing...How come a wine sounds so much more enticing when it pops up on this chart? I was just at a wine tasting event and people were sampling the Seghesio 2007 Zin which was just ranked #10 on the list. Most people trying it did not like it, but when the sales person noted that it was #10, it suddenly became likable. People ordered cases! There was also, a Portuguese wine that came in at #3. I've actually had this wine way back in January and thought it was spectacular. People thought I was crazy. Now my local wine guy is sold out completely. Here's another example of a wine tha nobody wanted, but now it's the hardest thing to find. Any comments?
