Top 25 Wines of 2016!

Dear Friends of Golden Gate Wine Cellars, It has been an amazing year of tasting, smelling & swishing wines. We must have tasted over 2000 wines this year, so to come up with our “own” Top 25 wines that are “the best” is not easy. But as always, we will do our best! My tasting group of 18 wine swishers, wine smellers, wine “evaluators”, and friends of Bacchus carefully evaluated the wines and came up with the following list:
