High Points of 2011

Issue: December 31, 2011

The heart of this issue focuses on two of the biggest events of our year: Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 and the 30th anniversary of our Wine Experience. Each year since 1988, our editors have compiled a list of what they consider the 100 most exciting wines Wine Spectator has reviewed over the previous 12 months. It's a challenging process. This year, for example, we tasted more than 16,000 wines; there were many worthy candidates, and each editor had favorites to propose.

For the full article, check out the new issue of Wine Spectator, on newsstands December 6, 2011.
