Since 1988, the popular American Wine Spectator magazine reviews 18,000 wines per year, and they publish a Top 100 list mid November of each year. There is always a rush to get the top wines this year is no exception.

The 2014 edition of the Wine Spectator Top 100 is surprising with the number of Portuguese wines chosen – never before have this kind of love (3 of the top 4 and 4 in the top 13) been shown and rightly so – 2011 is a legend of a year for both Douro reds and their special long-aging Vintage Ports.

Some interesting tidbits, the average score of the wines in this year’s list is 93 points, and the average price is $47. Sadly once again, no Canadian wines represented (we can only hope for next year), though it is nice to see Israel represented.

We have a limited number of wines (and in limited quantitites) and you can check them out here. Do purchase them early as they tend to go fast and compare your taste with those of the critics.

deVine as usual will be doing our annual stand-up Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines tasting – $50, where a selection of wines that made the grade will be featured at our first tasting of the new year. Be sure to sign up early to avoid disappointment as this sells out annually as it makes for a great Christmas present.
