I am a bigger fan of the Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Singers of All-Time (although Steve Tyler being beaten out by Christina Aguilera and Steve Perry is pretty crazy).
Out of the 100 wines listed, one that I was shocked not to see was the Bodegas Borsao Crianza 2005 ($14.98, 92 WS). I wasn’t really sure why, I mean, this is a helluva wine at a helluva price with an obviously fantastic score. Better than most on the list. Yet it’s not there. Go figure.
Wines that we managed to get a good supply of are the Seghesio Sonoma County Zinfandel 2007 (#10), Bodegas Colome Malbec 2006 (#38), Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2008 (#40 – someone from there is pleasuring Marvin Shanken on a regular basis I am certain of it!), Leasingham Magnus Riesling 2007 (#44), Bodegas Sierra Cantabria Crianza 2004 (#71) and Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva 2004 (#65).
All-in-all, I have so far managed to pull together 18 of the 100 wines on that list. Whether that is respectable or not, I don’t know. But i would love to hear your thoughts on this list.
