906866-big
As they do every year Wine Spectator has published their Top 100 wines for 2016.  Both Spain and Portugal did well again this year, however the selection is less diverse from each country than in previous years.  Spain has a total of eleven wines in the Top 100, and Portugal has four.  Of Spain’s eleven, eight are reds, two are whites, and one is a Sherry.  For Portugal all four wines are still reds.    From Spain the lowest price is $15 for the white Bodegas Ontañon Viura Rioja Vetiver 2014, and the highest price is $65 for Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos Toro San Román 2012 which received 95 points.  From Portugal the lowest price is $10 for Quinta de Cabriz Dão 2014, and the highest price is $68 for Lemos & van Zeller Douro Quinta Vale D. Maria 2013.  All these wines are great values.  Click here to be taken to a list of the Spanish and Portuguese wines in the Top 100.
