Straw yellow color with pale green reflections when held in the light. Lemon curd, fresh lemon, jasmine and other white flowers on the nose with more lemon and a touch of honey on the palate.
HOLIDAY PAIRING: The perfect way to start 12 Nights of Wine. Wash away the lingering Gingerbread Spiced, Pumpkin Spiced, Fermented Turmeric or whatever kind of lattes that got you through your hectic day and prepare your palate for the next 11 stunning wines.
This sweet wine is like raw honey drizzled over the best damn apricot pastry you can dream up. Tastes like it, too, with lemon and ripe nectarine.
HOLIDAY PAIRING:Easy and satisfying, like walking on crunchy Autumn leaves. Expertly tested and proven to expedite the wrapping of presents though sometimes with a touch less-tidy results. (They’re just going to rip it open anyways…)
Starts with strawberry and raspberry jam on the nose and evolves into crisp cranberry, white peach, white cherry and a pithy blood orange on the palate.
HOLIDAY PAIRING: Use that discount code you’ve been holding onto for your favorite food ordering app and add some hot Thai or Indian takeout to your cart. This somewhat weighty rosé (it’s just winter weight!) is beautiful with spicy food.
Dense tannins, powerful black fruits and very fine acidity. Almost black in color, the wine is graceful amongst its power. Aged for over 20 months, including 12 in barrels, the wine is ready to be enjoyed as soon as the winery releases it, with an additional few years of aging potential for those with patience. Notes of roasted nuts, toast and coffee mingle with candied black fruits and a seemingly melted oak flavor. Yum.
HOLIDAY PAIRING: You won't care if everybody is smiling in the family portrait or not after drinking this wine as the complex flavors and myriad aromas will have your mind occupied for hours ;)
Super high quality Muscadet, a wine typically reserved for plastic cups and trips to the beach (which this would still completely be perfect for, btw.) Textured and rich from whole cluster pressing with fragrant almond flower and quince notes on first sniff. The mouthfeel is accentuated by flavors of sugar torched grapefruit, ripe lemon curd, fresh lemon oil and a distinctive chalky minerality that lengthens the finish. A real treat for a Muscadet .
HOLIDAY PAIRING: Pop this one in your bag and bring it to a holiday blockbuster (wait, they made another Star Wars?!) A crisp white paired with movie theatre popcorn and a matinée is perfection.
A younger and brighter expression of Nebbiolo than you’ll find with the Barolo. Still aged in large oak casks, though only for 24 months, the wine displays more of the tart raspberry and fresh snipped flower scents and drinks with flavors of bright red fruits, cherries soaked in alcohol and liquorice, and a touch of forest floor bramble.
HOLIDAY PAIRING: The bold aromas of the wine do well to help drown out the sounds of family arguing, children demanding dino-shaped chicken nuggets, and Fortnite sounds in the background.
The most well-known Nebbiolo region, and for good reasons. Released 4 full years after harvest, 3 of those spent in oak, Barolo is a powerhouse of rich rose and anise aromas and mouth-drying tannins. The paradox is that all of this is contained within a seemingly light wine; coffee, vanilla, red cherry, potpourri, allspice, truffles, tar, liquorice and primordial Earth are all here. Oh, and tons and tons of enjoyable fruit on top of those gripping, addictive tannins. The King Of Italy!
HOLIDAY PAIRING: As classic as "It's A Wonderful Life" on Christmas Eve. Enjoy this last glass while getting ready for your holiday party or making final preparations for the big day. Happy Holidays from all of us here at VINEBOX. You got this!
