Hello my wine loving friends. Four interesting and very different bottles of wine. However, they have a very special consideration in common. What do you think these four wines have in common?
Here are some very good answers, some funny answers, and some interesting insights to possibilities. And there is real truth to some also.
1. Excellent wines 🙂 ?
2. Are all under denominations?
3. The are all currently in your stomach?
4. I’ve had the Haza and loved it in four or five different vintages.
5. All are non mountainous?
6. They are all featured in your book?
7. They’re all in your portfolio?
8. Hartford is a KJ wine, Felsina Beradenga & Vin Santo are two of my favorites. Can’t imagine any connections?
9. It not the year, it not the grape, it not the terroir… what they have in common? They are your’s
10. You believe they are all better than their price might suggest?
11. Top 100?
12. Spectator Top 100?
Ah ha… 11 and 12, you both got it correct. Yes, all four of these wines are on the Top 100 List as the Best Wines in The World for 2016 by the Wine Spectator. Very exciting is that I have all four of them in my cellar. And I cannot wait to open them.
From left to right (in the photo) is… #18, #61, #40 and #10.

Person 10 brings up a very good point. These wines are underpriced when you consider they are the best wines in the world. Drinking Top 100 Wines at these prices is amazing.
#18 is $25
#61 is $19
#40 is $26
#10 is $38
Drinking four of the top 100 wines in the world for just a little over $100 is a screaming deal!
Every year, Wine Spectator magazine comes out with their Top 100 Best Wines in the World list. It is fun to print out the list and start searching. It is not easy, I must tell you. However, they are findable. And the real reward… is when the cork comes out of the bottle.
