New Years Eve Wine Picks

White wine:

2019 Henry David Vineyard Aligoté Ernest Vineyards, Bennet Valley – $36

Bright and clear. Exuberant aroma – orchard blossoms, lush melon, Meyer lemon. Wet Seashells. Young Gravenstein apple on the finish, dried herbs on the mid palate. Gorgeous bright acidity. A Rockstar.


Sparkling wine:

Breathless Brut Magnum, North Coast – $79

44% Pinot Noir, 53% Chardonnay, 3% Pinot Meunier. Crowd pleaser. Pink grapefruit, tart green apples.


2014 Iron Horse Vineyards Stargazing Cuvee Magnum – $195

75% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir. By nose: Meyer lemon and Filbert nut. By mouth: Ripe red apple, rich and creamy with a touch
of lemon zest. Takes ordinary to extraordinary.


Red wine:

2019 Crux Winery GSM Red Wine, Russian River Valley – $47

Grenache, Syrah and Mourvédre. Great with food or on its own. Pairs well with liberty duck or lamb.
