A bottle of wine can be the perfect gift for any occasion but especially during the holiday season when parties are plentiful. No one wants to show up empty handed to a party, and if you are unsure of what to give the host, a perfect gift that you can give is a bottle of wine! We understand that there are a lot of varieties and brands of wine in specialty and grocery stores, so we have compiled the perfect gift giving wine guide to get you through this holiday season.
2014 Klinker Brick Cabernet Sauvignon
Arrive at your party bearing a bottle of this, and you will undoubtedly make an impression—you may even get invited back. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is the inaugural vintage of the varietal with flavors of cherry, currant, leather and a hint of black tea. Keep in mind that you will find a variety of Cabernet’s at every price, and you can spend anywhere between $10 and $25 for a nice Bottle.
Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir
The overall impression you will have with Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir is that it is rich with refined tannins, firm acidity and explosive layers of ripe fruit. Deep ruby red in color with intriguing aromas of sun-warmed blackberries, ripe plums, with hints of black licorice. A complexity of dark berry fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries and bing cherries along with dark chocolate flavors. You will also experience the vanilla and cedar oak undertones that further enhance the wine.
Bottega Prosecco in Gold, Rose Gold or White Gold (Silver) Bottle
Much can be said for Bottega’s elegance, freshness and liveliness of its bubbles and there is no better way to get a party started, or to unwind after a big party, than with a beautiful glass of Prosecco! The Bottega Prosecco bottles not only contains one of the most popular brands of bubbly but they are also very appealing to the eye. Choose from Gold, Rose Gold or White Gold varieties, each containing their own beautiful blend of Prosecco.
2015 Frog Leap Chardonnay, Napa Valley
Why not treat yourself to an amazing Chardonnay? If you are serving cuisine that pairs well with white wine, we recommend Frog Leap Chardonnay, which is said to be simply delicious and unlike typical Chardonnays in that it’s not fruity, sweet or oaky. This is also an excellent gift for your host or hostess as the price is not too extravagant but just around the mid-mark for a superb gift giving wine.
