10 Tasty Holiday Cocktail Ideas From Real Simple
OUR FRIDAY LINE-UP:
Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve- Reg. $40.99 SALE $33.99
To start off the tasting we have a beautiful Champagne. Pale yellow with silver tinges, this wine looks great in a glass, with a persistent stream of delicate bubbles. The nose starts off with fresh white fruit and light notes of turmeric and other spices. As it opens up, more ripe fruits are displayed. The palate is clean and elegant, displaying similar fruits to the nose while still having a few surprises. A truly wonderful Champagne, perfect for the Holidays.
Left Coast Chardonnay- Reg. $21.99 SALE $17.99
The Left Coast Truffle Hill Chardonnay is a more full-bodied wine, perfect for the weather we are currently having. Bursting with bright orange blossom, pear and quince, this Chardonnay is sure to impress. The palate also displays great flavors of wet stone and tea spices with a woody spice finish and very balanced acidity. 100% barrel-fermented in French Oak, this Chardonnay has a lot of depth and complexity for a white wine. A great wine even for those who aren’t crazy about Chardonnay and is one of Ann’s favorites!
Emmanuel Darnaud Crozes-Hermitage- Reg. $24.99 SALE $19.99
Moving into the reds, we have an awesome French bottle to start. Very much an easy drinking wine, the palate still enjoys deep flavors of dark fruits and floral notes. The nose is clean with berries and aromas of violets. A fairly youthful wine, it has great energy and vibrancy from start to finish. We really love this bottle and have it set up in our Pork and Lamb display, which in our opinion go perfectly with this wine! This is another one of Ann’s favorites and it’s easy to see why!
Hindsight Napa Cabernet- Reg. $59.99 SALE $44.99
It might be hard to top last week’s Hardin Cabernet but this one sure does it. Nothing subtle about this wine- it is a full-bodied Cabernet that doesn’t pull any punches. Dark and black fruit flavors consume the palate before flowing into coffee and cocoa flavors and present oak. It finishes with firm and long-lasting tannins that linger with the dark fruit long after you’ve had your first sip. The favorite from our Napa Cab tasting, and Pettyjohns’ favorite Cab, this is a bottle you don’t want to miss.
See you tonight!
