The 4 Wines of 2013 Today I came to work planning on writing an article about wines I can no longer afford to buy, but along the way I took a detour, or rather a detour took me. It took me for an in-depth and frankly, surprising ride as I looked at those wines I had bought relatively recently and then compared their current values to the cost of acquiring a current release of each wine. What I saw was surprising to say the least, though in need of further work if it were to accurately convey meaning.

There are however some takeaways worth noting here, and those takeaways do indeed lead to some conclusions regarding what wines might present great buying opportunities in 2013 and beyond. So instead of discussing what wines I can no longer afford, though we’ll deal with that next week, here are some that I can afford, and why they are worth buying.

  • Re: Riojas. I've had many crianzas and reserves in the past decade and don't think the reserves scale proportionately tastewise vs price. In fact, I think some of the $ 13-18 formers are better than their $ 35-40 latters.

    Well I know very well the Riojas,and some like the Monte Real from Bodegas Riojanas don't have price,are wines excepcionals in all their dimension,when you can drink a wine with 15 years and don't feel that years in your palate this is a fantastic experience from wines that everybody like.

    Some of the best wine perspective and plain journalistic truth that I have read in some time. Of course, agreement does cloud objectivity, but as a wine professional in the restaurtant industry where revenue driven employers demand meeting 'the bottom line', I too have been relegated to schmuck status in the discharge of my responsibility to my client community in quality and value in my recommendations. I am impressed with Mr. Dal Piag's acuity and the depth of his global view. I pride myself in same and invite discussion regarding this topical theme.
