Drinkhacker 2008 Vintage Chart / Wine Cheat Sheet

Drinkhacker 2008 Vintage Chart / Wine Cheat Sheet

It’s been a year since we updated the “cheat sheet” vintage chart, designed to let you know what years are the best for certain wine grapes and regions, and which you can avoid.

As with last year’s edition, here’s how to use the cheat sheet: Only the last two digits of a year are included to save space, and the list only rarely reaches back into the pre-WWII era, so assume anything you see starting with a zero to be from this century.

All years listed here are exemplary vintages, but those in green with underlining are the cream of the crop, “classic” years that you should consider the very best on the market. (Why green and underlined? So you can tell the difference whether you use a color or black & white printer.)

This list is mostly updated to account for the 2006 vintage. Check back next October to see the updates for 2007!
