Christmas Wine Essentials

The LCBO has over 100 wines that they stock all the time in the vintage section.  I have chosen a few for your holiday entertaining.  You will find them somewhere.

Terra D’aligi Tatone Montepulciano D’abruzzo 2008, Doc, Italy. $15.95 (994616)

A nice simple red to serve while company is milling about.  Its got a nice deep red color and a food friendly finish.  Perfect for standing around before you serve the cellared wine for dinner.

Malivoire Ladybug Rosé 2011, VQA Niagara Peninsula, $15.95 (559088)

Pale pink in color and with a beautiful strawberry nose .  Nice and refreshing and easy to drink lots of.  Good to numb your mind for dinner with the in-laws.

Esporão Reserva Red 2009, Alentejo, Portugal, $25.95 (606590)

A great Portugal red that has ripe fruit and chocolate notes.  Great for a roast beef dinner or something to step your party up a notch.  Perfect to serve to your favorite Aunt and Uncle.

J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Paso Robles, California, $21.95 (656561)

Smooth operator. This is a crowd pleasing Cabernet that will please any age in your group.  From the young easy drinker to the blue hairs who like some sweetness.  It comes in 1.5L bottle too, so you’ll have some left over to watch your National Lampoon marathon.
