One of the joys of judging wines under blind conditions is the discovery of truly delicious and superb bottlings.
Often, the process of tasting blind confirms what we already think about a wine. Then realizing the greatness of a wine you know little about is gleeful.
We’ve tasted blind for nearly two decades. We know neither the producer nor the price of a wine until after the wine is evaluated. After that, we then take the opportunity to dig into a wine’s background, looking at everything from vineyard sources to winemaking techniques.
Here are a dozen wines that have earned our top “Outstanding!” rating during blind tastings the past several weeks. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly.
