I will use this thread to update information on the second year of the TAA. For those unfamiliar with this tasting. It is a monthly event which is held in the privacy of your own home. Every month a member picks a wine and a future weekend to hold the tasting. Members then try to find the wine and those who do post their TN's in a thread started by the host on the selected weekend. We then compare scores and opinions. The previous months host also picks the member to host the next month and we start all over.

For information on the wines, scores, prices, hosts and members participating in the first year, go to this link:

Your post reminded me to update the Marquis Philips stats. 4 more members added notes after I totalled up the score. The number of members participating in the Marquis Philips TAA is now 43.

To answer your question, yes it is the highest # of participants. The old highs were: 27, 25, 24, 21 and 20 in various months.
