Every year since 1988, the experts from Wine Spectator have compiled a list of the most exciting wines reviewed over the hole year.  This list of Top 100 Wines of 2011 reflects significant trends, recognize outstanding producers and spotlight successful regions and vintages around the world.
Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2009 has accumulated 95 points and is the leader among 100 Wines of 2011.

The list was selected from more than 16,000 new releases rated in independent blind tastings. More than 5,400 of these wines earned outstanding or classic ratings (90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale). Wine Spectator narrowed the list down based on four criteria: quality (represented by score); value (reflected by release price); availability (measured by cases made or imported); and the “X-factor”– the excitement generated by a rising-star producer, a benchmark wine or a significant milestone for a wine region.

In this year’s list, 12 countries are represented, and quality remains high, with an average score of 93 points. The average price per bottle dipped from last year from $48 to $44, compared with a $70 average for 90-point wines reviewed this year.
