About The Top 100 of 2019

Wine lovers today have more choice than ever. Wine Spectator’s

annual Top 100, an honor roll that reflects the past year in wine, champions this diversity. So while a glance confirms that France, Italy and California dominate the 2019 list, accounting for two-thirds of the selections, a closer look reveals a breadth of offerings from both emerging regions and lesser-known appellations within those wine giants.

Our tasters reviewed more than 15,000 new releases in 2019; more than 6,250 of those scored 90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale. From that initial pool of wines, we evaluated each bottle for its combination of quality (based on score), value (price), availability (cases made or imported into the United States) and, most important, an exciting backstory, what we call the “X-factor.”

The result is a snapshot of the wine world today. Spain, Australia and Oregon are also well-represented, and 44 wineries are making their debut appearance in our Top 100 this year. Though the scores and prices vary, the overall average is 93 points and $54, respectively.

More than a dozen late-release 2015s earn spots on the list, along with over three dozen new releases from the 2018 and 2017 vintages. However, nearly 40 percent of the wines are from the superlative 2016 vintage, an excellent year in both Europe and the United States.

We hope you enjoy this exciting list of first-rate wineries, new discoveries, comeback stories and terrific values.

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a value that’s hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price." - Jeb Dunnuck (4/11/2019)
