Still looking for wines to serve at the Thanksgiving dinner table? Thank goodness for Wine Spectator, which released its picks for the top 100 wines of 2012.
The winning wine? Shafer Vineyards' Relentless Napa Valley 2008, which Wine Spectator describes as a "riveting blend of syrah and petite sirah." Shafer Vineyards is more known for its cabnernet sauvignons, but its Relentless blend has taken Napa Valley by storm. Wine Spectator also notes that the wine, made of cofermented grapes, is aged 30 months in French oak barrels.
You can get the full scoop on Shafer Vineyards from Wine Spectator, and the full list of wines there as well. Other winners? Wines from the Rhone Valley in France, Willamette Valley in Oregon, and even Austrailia in the top 10 wines.
