There are many tight races as we count down to the final tally. I find it fascinating to watch the category leaders change, watch as one wine surges while another fades. There are some really compelling wines in these categories so that should come as no surprise. Wines like these breed a dedicated following.
Check out some of the tightest races and cast your votes today for your favorite wines. They really can make all the difference and each counts as an entry in the 2013 PVA Sweepstakes!
Let's get things started with this interesting development. Late in the game it's Pauillac and Margaux duking it out for the final 4 positions. Can Grand-Puy-Lacoste cruise to victory? It certainly is deserving.
Super Premium Chardonnay
It can't come as a surprise that Rombauer Chardonnay is beating out some tough competition! It's a wine that established a style and price point that has proven wildly successful.
Premium Global Red
The competition is tough here, but there defintiely is a home team advantage pushing the Claifornia natives to the top of the leader board.
Value Italian White
Pinot Grigio is neck and neck for first and second place here but creeping up along the outside is Orvieto. Anybody remember Orvieto? Heck if this was 1970 it would be Orvieto and Frascati fighting it out for first!
Premium New World Pinot Noir
This is a bit of a surprise, the dominance of the Californians here, with Oregon's entries fading back to third and sixth place. Still, you can't fault anyone for loving the Hahn, it's a terrific wine!
