Five wines that are perfect for the holidays--all under $20.
2004 House Wine
Washington, Walla Walla
Magnificent Wine Co/K Vintners
Not sure what to bring to the new neighbor’s housewarming? Try K Vintners House Wine, red blend. At 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Syrah and derived from the Walla Walla Region of Washington State, House Wine contains an aroma of cocoa powder and black currant along with bold tastes of black cherry, cassis and spice. With a blank label design you can color it in to match your neighbors pad! With this mix of reds, you will be sure to please a variety of taste buds.
2005 Pink Fiddle Pinot Noir
California, Santa Rita Hills
Woman-owned and operated, Fiddlehead Cellars has created the delightfully pretty and fabulously fruity Pink Fiddle Pinot Noir— perfect for the most elegant and bold female you know. With the fresh smell of strawberries and the tastes of passion fruit and raspberries, this wine is recommended to pair with spicy Asian dishes or lighter meats such as pork and chicken. This wine is also perfect by itself and/or paired with a clear-skied sunset.
2005 Zaca Mesa Chardonnay
California, Santa Barbara
Zaca Mesa Winery
From beautiful Santa Barbara, California, comes Zaca Mesa Winery’s Chardonnay. With subtle nutmeg and clove notes, and ripe pear and banana flavors, this tasty and delicate wine can be paired with the most delicate of foods such as risotto or grilled salmon. Chicken, pork and shrimp with cream sauces also work well with this wine. If you just want it with some cheese try either gouda, havarti, or parmesan which offer great balances to Chardonnay’s high acidity.
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand, Marlborough
Nobilo Wine Group
In the mood for something refreshing, tasty and perhaps international? And no, we’re not talking about an undercover lover—try New Zealand’s Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. With grapefruit, passion fruit and pineapple flavors, this wine is perfect for pairing with a variety of appetizers, sushi, and Thai food, as well as perfectly complementing a fresh Caesar or Garden salad. Goat, brie, swiss and mozzarella cheeses also blend well with this wine. Bright and versatile, Sauvignon Blanc is a safe bet for any occasion.
2003 Seven Sinners Syrah "The Ransom"
California, Napa Valley
Nine North Wine Company
Need a gift for that bad boy or bad girl in your life? Check out Seven Sinners Syrah. Named after the wild winemakers themselves, the rich blackberry, licorice, pepper and exotic spice flavors make this a bold wine to be paired with savory foods and rich cheeses such as blue and provolone. Try red meats and hot 'n' spicy pasta dishes, but when dinner is served, don’t forget to pop the cork and let this bad boy "decant."
