Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines 2008

November 7, 2008 · Posted in Drinks 

It’s that time of year when things get ranked. What were the best movies? What are the best cars? And what are the best wines of 2008?

Even though I am not a big wine drinker, I like bourbon myself, I appreciate the connection between cigars and wine. They are both things that demand connoisseurship. If you are not willing to put in the time to understand what it is you are drinking (or smoking) then you will never be able to fully appreciate those finer things in life.

So, for those of you cigar smokers who love a great glass of wine with your cigars, Wine Spectator, the sister publication of Cigar Aficionado, is coming out with a Top 100 list and will begin unveiling their list soon.

And if you don’t know the difference between tannins and terroir (I’m still a little fuzzy) this Top 100 list is a good place to start understanding what makes a wine great.
