Top 100?

While our blog is normally about wines and wine news of the Applegate, this one is about news that doesn’t include the Applegate – sort of Applegate news by omission.

Wine Enthusiast magazine just released their “Top 100” wines list for 2011.  Now admittedly, this is a worldwide list so the competition is pretty stiff.  But personally I think the NW might have been a little under-represented.  The list had 14 wines from Washington (9) and Oregon (4).  Those were:

#15 – Domaine Serene 2007 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir – 95 points, $58
#16 – Buty 2007 Columbia Rediviva Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah – 96 points, $48
#17 – Cayuse 2007 Cailloux Vineyard Syrah – 99 points, $65
#21 – Trisaetum 2010 Estates Reserve Riesling – 95 points, $32
#26 – Rasa Vineyards 2008 DuBrul Vineyard Creative Impulse –97 points, $95
#30 – Charles Smith 2007 Royal City Stoneridge Vineyard Syrah – 99 points, $140
#34 – Mark Ryan 2008 Dead Horse – 95 points, $45
#38 – Januik 2007 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – 95 points, $50
#41 – Betz Family 2008 Père de Famille Cabernet Sauvignon – 95 points, $60
