JAMES BARLOW’S ‘STOCKING STUFFERS’ FOR CHRISTMAS 2015

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Merry Christmas!  Here are three no brainer wines for the white elephant parties or stocking stuffers this holiday season.

Marchesi Biscardo ‘Ripasso’ Red Blend 2013

Valpolicella, Veneto

Cash Price $19.94

Biscardo’s baby Amarone is exquisite.  Dark black plums and black cherry sinew through sleek tannins and acids with licks of black licorice, vanilla bean, and roasted figs.  Wow!

Jean Baptiste Adam Cremant Rose N/V

Alsace, France

Cash Price $19.94

Adam is my favorite sparkling Rose for this price point.  Flavors of red cherries and raspberry flow into touches of brioche and creamy hazelnuts with tight, clean bubbles.

 

Block 525 Chardonnay 2014

Russian River Valley, California

Cash Price $14.99

The Block series is always a stunning value wine and a win in the stocking stuffers.  Tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, mango and meyer lemon.  The finish is creamy with licks of butter and oak.
