The holidays can be overwhelming with shopping, decorating, holiday cards, and visiting folks. Instead of picking that one date in December, smack in the middle of the craziness, to host a big holiday bash, why not throw a smaller more intimate gathering where you enjoy good company and good wine. We asked Bottle Revolution 3 sommelier Patrick Agate to choose wines worth sharing with your favorite people.
Folk Tree Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012, $24
If you’re looking for quality and mass appeal you’ve gotta include a Napa cab. This one is well made and reasonably priced.
Christian Moreau, 2014, $28
This is the kind of chardonnay I make people taste when they tell me they don’t like chardonnay.
Flowers Pinot Noir, 2014, $43
This is a very dry version of its varietal. It’s very tasty and everyone loves it.
Pascal Jolivet, 2014, $25.
It’s 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc and it’s dry, crisp and delicious.
