Wine Spectator has videos of the top 10 wines on its website. Make sure to check it out.
1) Saxum - James Berry Vineyard
Paso Robles 2007
98 Points $67
I am very excited a winemaker from Paso Robles is being recognized this year. I love this area for wine. It is often overlooked but not this year!!
2) Two Hands Shiraz Bella's Garden
Barossa Valley 2008
94 points $55
No Napa Cabs in the top 3 this year....I kinda like it. Cabs aren't the only great wines being made. Although 4 and 5 are Napa Cabs lol.
7) Schild Shiraz 2008 from Australia for only $20 !!!! I will have to find this.
I like that #9 was from Portugal and #10 was a Chateauneuf-du-Pape White 2009 from France. The picture of the vineyard on the side of this blog is from a vineyard in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region. :)
This year has a well rounded top 10 with wines from California, Australia, Portugal, France and Italy.
The rest of the top 100 wines will be released this Tuesday.
