Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines they’ve reviewed over the past 12 months and select the most “exciting” for their Top 100 list.
It’s possible at Vintage 1891 in Larchmont. Just ask.
“It’s very rare to find a place that will let you taste these wines without buying a bottle,” says Vintage 1891 Wine Director Alicia Wilbur, “but here you may.”
Wine flights are also available. “Choose your adventure,” she says.
