Warm and Friendly Wines

Polkura Syrah 2009, Marchigue, Colchagua Valley, Chile, $23.95 (283978)

Oh this feels good when you drink it.  It’s like sitting on Grandpa’s lap in front of the fire.  It’s warm, smokey, and has a comforting mentholy like Bengay scent.  Grab a few of these and share with family and Grandma’s overcooked roast beef.

Travaglini Gattinara 2006, Docg, Nebbiolo Italy, $29.95 (713354)

This wine is made from the same grape (Nebbiolo) as all Barolo’s and Barbaresco’s.    After a hard days work, this is like rewarding yourself with a big spoonful of Nutella.  It’s smooth, mouth filling, slightly sweet and nutty, and the taste lingers on.  Pair this with 2 Piedmontese classics: Rabbit stew and Ferrero Rocher.
