Don’t need too much information, the title pretty much says it all. Any wine we drank in 2020 qualifies.
It was a pretty good year, as most years are. Cannot believe the delicious 95+ point Sassicaia barely snuck into the Top 10!
At #9, the first of a few from one of our favorite producers in California. Honestly these guys are so good, we are stunned when we have one of their wines that DOESN’T blow us away.
At #8, here they are again, with as good a Zinfandel as you will ever have.
#7. Starting to sense a pattern.
#6. Finally we found a wine that could compete with Hartford! The most amazing rosé!
#5. These guys again?
#4. What an absolute stunner from Argentina.
At #3, the wine I dubbed “Best in Show” at the 2020 Vancouver International Wine Festival. This is in my cellar for a few years.
#2. You didn’t think my list of great wines would not include an icewine, did you??
And, #1. The wine my wife said should have received a perfect 100 point score. I didn’t go quite that far, but she’s certainly not off base. It’s been 6 months since we drank this and it’s still not finished. Amazing.
So that’s officially it for 2020! From a wine standpoint, it wasn’t a bad year at all. From EVERY OTHER STANDPOINT…….don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out, 2020.
Up next! I’ll be reviewing everything we are drinking this year (especially from our “Italy month” that is currently underway), and working on some more exciting things for my YouTube channel. Stay tuned!!
