Our favorite wines for the 2019 Holiday Season.
2015 Lewis Vineyard Riesling
This Riesling exhibits a pale straw color and opens with fresh notes of lime, Meyer lemon and Bartlett pear. Hints of petroleum wax, orange blossom and wet stone are reinforced by a crisp acidity that pays tribute to our Germanic approach. Built to age beautifully, you can also drink now with your favorite spicy dish.
The perfect complement to a rustic apple galette and its delicate sweetness, notes of tart apple, cinnamon and cloves.
This 100% Syrah opens with notes of ripe dark fruit, boysenberry and a hint of cola. On the palate, clove and vanilla are complemented by allspice and a layer of sweet tobacco. A bright acidity leads to a long finish on this bold, full-bodied wine.
Pair with herb roasted turkey and wild mushroom gravy.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon XXI
Gorgeous in the glass, our deep ruby Cabernet Sauvignon opens with bright raspberry, cassis and a hint of baking spice on the nose. Darker notes of black currant, fennel and dried herbs join in the mid-palate, while bold tannins and acidity usher in a long finish. Drink this full-bodied Cabernet now through 2030.
For those who enjoy prime rib at their holiday table.
