(CBS NEWS) – Raise a glass and toast Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie — the couple’s wine has been named one of the world’s best.

Wine Spectator released its annual Top 100 list, and Brangelina’s Cotes de Provence Rose Miraval made the cut.

The magazine describes the wine, which came in at No. 84 on its list, as “Refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon.”

“The focused finish features flint and spice notes, with a hint of cream,” the description added.

The wine, which retails for $28, earned 90 out of a possible 100 on Wine Spectator’s point scale, a score reserved for “wines of superior character and style.”

Jolie and Pitt’s foray into wines is a joint venture with established vintner Marc Perrin. When the first 6,000 bottles of the 2012 vintage were put on sale this past spring, they sold out within five hours.

The name Miraval comes from the couple’s 1,000-acre French estate, where the wine was produced.
