Here are our answers – Cheers + Happy Holidays!
Red – Block Nine Caiden’s Vineyards Pinot Noir
beautifully long + rich in ripe cherry and berry flavors
White – White Oak Russian River Chardonnay
golden delicious apple, anjou pear and subtle toasty oak notes
HOST/HOSTESS GIFT IDEAS
Sparkling – Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc De Blancs
subtle notes of pineapple, peach, honeysuckle, apricot and lime
White – Kendall Jackson VR Chardonnay
tropical flavors – pineapple, mango, and papaya – with citrus notes
Red – Gerard Bertrand Reserve Speciale Pinot Noir

Cheers! And remember to celebrate responsibly.
