Two “must try” wines from our shelves for white and red wine lovers alike. Put these on your list for Santa!
2008 Bridesmaid White Wine ($20)
This is delicious regardless of the fact that I tend to drink red wine in the winter months with the exception of the occasional Chardonnay. However, the Semillon that makes up 60% of this white blend gives it such a roundness on the palate and really tones down the brightness of the Sauvignon Blanc, that I don’t seem to mind drinking white wine even though it is below 30 degrees outside! Fruit forward, with a creamy, soft texture and medium body. All i can say is YUM. The bottle is gorgeous to boot – great gift bottle.
2008 Revelry Vintners “The Reveler” ($20)
Now this is right up my alley for a red to enjoy now. This is the perfect weather for curling up on the couch with a big fire going, admiring the Christmas tree lights and enjoying a glass of red wine. This is a delicious red blend of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cab that is smooth, layered and rich. Another wonderful bottle offering to give as a gift as well – this wine goes to show you that you do not have to spend $40 to get a great bottle of wine. However I am pretty sure once you taste it you will be keeping this one for yourself.
