Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2021

Beaujolais Nouveau is a French tradition that celebrates the first wine of a new vintage. This fresh and fruity wine is bottled only a few weeks after harvest and is meant to be enjoyed immediately upon release. Vibrant red fruits such as strawberries and currants on the palate and an intense perfume make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie and traditional holiday fare.
Louis Latour Pouilly Fuisse

Un-oaked Chardonnay, this wine from the south of Burgundy is a zesty, lively wine with a nice crisp acidity. It offers floral, fruity, and citrus aromas.100% Chardonnay
Domaine Bernard Moreau Bourgogne Red 2019

Light, smoky and vanilla with some flavors of earth, moss, mushrooms (chanterelles), this small PN with excellent value for money adapts to everything and goes everywhere, especially very well with grilled vegetables. I liked it!
Villa Antinori Toscana Rosso

Villa Antinori shows an intense ruby red color, and its nose is a complex one: there is red fruit, cherries and plums along with berry fruit and mint, well balanced with the sensations of spices and vanilla from the oak barrels. The palate is round and is endowed with supple and velvety tannins as well as a long and savory finish and aftertaste.

Appetizers- Saint Andrieu L’Oratoire Rosé 2020
While cleansing your palate and creating a festive atmosphere, this Provençal Rosé greets with a lively nose of strawberries and citrus. The expressive mouth reminds of pink grapefruit and red berries. The finish is crisp and clean; the perfect companion with creamy brie or fruit.

Turkey- Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay 2019
Whether it’s roasted, deep-fried, or smoked this white will frame the delicate flavors of the bird. The aromas of toasty oak aromas lead into hazelnut, pecan and marzipan expressions on the nose of this bottling. The palate is loaded with roasted nuts and oak, showing flavors of butterscotch, seared marshmallow and ripe apple baked in brown spices.

Ham or Pork Roast- Margerum M5 White 2019
Pork tends to have a salty characteristic and some body with a touch of residual sugar frames the meal and offsets the salt. Wine Enthusiast listed Margerum as one of the top 100 wines of the year, garnering a 94 point rating. This is a true people-pleaser- even if they don’t drink wine. This is complex and yet utterly refreshing, this estate blend of 45% Grenache Blanc, 21% Marsanne, 14% Viognier, 13% Roussanne and 7% Picpoul Blanc. Opening with Rainier cherry and creamed pear on the crisp nose, the palate sizzles with acidity. This is truly memorable.

Lamb- Cune Rioja Crianza 2017
The delicate herbal qualities of roast Lamb make it one of the most wine-friendly of meats. When the meat is medium to well-done with garlic or rosemary, this fruit–driven Tempranillo blend is a lively red combining depth with energy. Bright berry and cherry flavors mingle with notes of fresh herb, cocoa and toast, supported by light tannins and crisp acidity. Focused and harmonious, Cune will make your meal exquisite.

Beef- Gundlach Bundschu Sonoma County Mountain Cuvée 2019 
Most beef recipes are filling and hearty, very few beef dishes can be considered light, which is why red wines go so well with beef. This Bordeaux-style blend will enhance roasts and steaks. This is delicious and dangerously easy-drinking, Mostly Merlot with a Cabernet Sauvignon back and a little Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cab Franc thrown in for good measure. 

Celebrating- Roger Goulart Gran Reserva Brut Cava 2012 
Whether it’s New Years or a weeknight dinner, sparklers are always a good idea. This one will WOW everyone that gets a glass. Long aged Cavas are the specialty of Roger Goulart. This 10 year old Cava was aged for 3 years in cellar before being bottled in March 2012. Vinous and full of ripe stone fruit notes with a fine bead and creamy, velvety texture.
