“Want to impress the tasted-it-all oenophile at your table? The bright salinity and nutty, citrus edge of a fino sherry make a surprising and surprisingly tasty accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner. This one features a light, dry palette with notes of toasted nuts and yeast with a fresh, savory finish.”
“Sparkling wine doesn’t begin and end with white. In fact, Lambrusco, that bubbling ‘80s favorite, has made a return in recent years with a more refined flavor palate that goes far beyond the cloyingly sweet bottles you remember. This 2017 vintage has a fresh, fruit-forward palate of berries and stonefruit with plenty of acid to keep it nicely balanced for dedicated red drinkers.”
“I'm in love with the wines from Margaret River, Australia. I've had the great fortune to visit the region, which is perhaps the most beautiful wine-growing area I've ever seen. They are producing wines among the most elegant expressions of Cabernet on the planet. This is the oldest producer in the region at a ridiculously low price."
“The Catena family is renowned in Argentina for all they have done for the industry in the country. Their wines are the best of the best. The Catena Zapata Nicolas is a perfect Argentine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. It shows off the energy and power the red wines can produce here."
“With a deeper, more tannic note than most other moscato wines, and an intense sweetness (the Rutherglen style is one of the sweetest moscato styles) this award-winning Australian bottle offers long-finishing notes of dried fruit, caramelized sugar, and hints of wood and spice that make it just right as a dessert pairing (or substitute).”
“At a delicate 5 percent alcohol by volume (for reference, the typical California cabernet sauvignon clocks in between 13-15 percent) this pale gold sparkler with tropical fruit notes is ideal for those between hours of the afternoon or late in the evening when you're craving a drink that won't weigh you down or go to your head.”
