I get lots of requests for what are your top 50 wines. I'd like some help from each of you guys and gals. Help me put together a top 50 wines of this year list. Start your engines and send them over. Hotwine, I can already guess yours, lets see if I am right.

Mine aren't collectibles.... just good food wines. Would usually say that my fav is whatever's in the bucket beside the table at supper... but stand-outs so far this year include:

Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva Tenute Marchese

Botter Spago Prosecco

Vina Nora Albarino Rias Baixas Nora da Neve

Cellar Vall Llach Priorat Embruix

Bodegas Ateca Zabrin Calatayud Garnach de Fuego Old Vines

Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa)

Avignonesi Rosso di Montepulciano
