The Top Ten Wines tasted year is alist of the best wines in my glass, or should I say on my palate, with the most important moments that were created with special wines, people and memories.
#4 - Open some of the oldest wines in my cellar. I do not want to get to the stage where my oldest bottles are too old to taste. Or worse, I am too old to taste them.
The best value wines are those that offer true character, style and pleasure with the ability to age and evolve. Plus they sell at a price most wine lovers can afford.
The top ten wines of 2013, took numerous factors into consideration. Of course the best bottles delivering sublime tasting experiences made the list. But there had to be more than just quality to make the top ten. Each wine and memory needed to capture a moment that stood out, above all the other experiences from the year.
The key to great wine and food parings is ,it's all about what you like to drink and eat once you decide if the wine, or the food is the star of the night.
The wines included on this list of the top 10 best wines tasted in 2012, combine quality with the unique memory of the tasting. It’s easy to pick the best wines. But the bottles that offer a memory of a moment that remains etched in your mind, are the truly special wines.
The criteria I focused on for my wines of the year varied. I wanted to focus the list on the wines that left the biggest impression, not only for the wine, but as a memory of the event.
