I would rather ponder it for a while and then respond rather than kicking out a knee-jerk comment
What causes one to prefer certain paradigms to others? I'm sure this is a complex interaction between our formative sides - including our individual personalities, expectations, values - and the wines themselves. Personally I've always enjoyed paradigm hopping. Life is too short not to take in all the vinous diversity that the world has to offer, IMO.
Personally I have a problem with any post that uses paradigm, and here we have three of them in one post
But it cannot be true that all wines are made in a way you don't like because there are some wines you like -- and you have listed them.
Isn't it true that Finland operates a state monopoly on the supply of wine? If so, your complaint should be made to the people who choose the wines there. Or uphold the monopoly. Because there are a hell of a lot of wines of all styles in the world.

There's nothing we can do about your monopoly, but is there any consumer movement for free trade in wine there? Any Finn political parties with a position on it?
You've posted this on several wine forums -- what is the response from Finnish ones?
