Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2015

Soon to be published in the December 1 edition of Wine Spectator, here you will find their picks for top 100 releases of the year.  These come from producers all over the world and different varietals.  From my experience, this wine disappear quickly after this list is published.  If you have any interest I would seek out quickly.  Take note of the wines priced under 25.00 per bottle as the saying goes its easy to buy a good bottle of wine for 50.00 but a lot more work to find the best bottle under 25.00.  This could be a head start.  Enjoy for your upcoming holiday seasons.
