The holidays are festive times of gatherings with friends and family. When it comes to wine, it can become challenging to select the right ones to serve, as everyone’s tastes are different. Is there a red or a white that most will enjoy? I have had some luck with these two – both are in my cellar and ideal for entertaining small groups.
For a red, give Austin Hope Cabernet a try!
Austin Hope – Paso Robles Best Cabernet Sauvignon | Hope Family Wines
The description from their website mentions: “Enticing aromas of fresh black cherry, burnt sugar, and a slight smokiness fill your glass. On the palate, flavors evolve with vanilla foam, ripe dark fruit, roasted coffee & nuances of spice. This full-bodied wine is rounded out with smooth supple tannins that are brightened with a touch of acidity to balance this crowd-pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon.” Oh, and this also pairs well with anything chocolate!
For a white, there’s always the ever-loved Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. For non-Chardonnay lovers, try the Sauvignon Blanc from Kim Crawford. The price point is quite economical with great availability, and both have been highly acclaimed.
