quote:As I said earlier, I easily tasted over 500 wines this past year. Among them were wines from France, Italy, Germany (including a pinot noir from Germany!), and Spain. Some of the wines were good, some were of poor quality and were over-priced. My list is the 12 best wines that I personally tasted during the year. As it happens, all of the wines are New World wines. It is what it is.
Hard to believe you put a list together in this price range and didn't come up with a single wine form France, Italy, or Germany. Or any othe Old World region for that matter.
