Each year for the last 10 years, I have had the pleasure of writing Seattle Metropolitan magazine's annual wine issue. For the first eight years, this was a Top 100 list of Washington's best wines.

Last year, we revamped the list to "Washington's 30 most exciting wines." This year's list, which is in the October issue of the magazine due out shortly but available on-line, is in the same vein, though it is titled "30 Washington wines to drink right now" (albeit with a category on cellar-worthy wines).

“This truly does not have an impact to the consumer, as it does not affect wine quality,” says Steve Warner, president of Washington State Wine.
