Spanish Wines in the Wine Spectator Top 100 list

Each year Wine Spectator magazine publishes their Top 100 wines of the year.  We like to highlight Spanish and Portuguese wines in their Top 100.  The wines they select are very good and/or represent good value for the consumer.  However, there are many, many more great Spanish wines available that do not find themselves onto these lists.  In any case, visit the Wine Spectator Top 100 Site to see each year’s list.
