Blasted Church “Big Bang Theory” 2011 $18.99

Review by David

A Merlot-dominant blend that is lighter in style with soft tannins and a smooth finish.  This makes it a versatile wine that would suit just about any holiday occasion, from a traditional turkey dinner to a festive gathering.  Look for currants and a hint of spice from the Syrah.

“Tis the Season” and what better way to celebrate than with this tasty, dry and affordable sparkling wine.  Perfect for Champagne cocktails, mimosas and holiday toasts.  Cheers to 2013!

 

Quails’ Gate Fortified Vintage Foch 2009 $22.99

Review by Lisa R

A fortified Port style wine that would be perfect to enjoy fireside after a day of skiing.  Inviting aromas and flavours of stewed plums, mocha and dark chocolate will warm you from the inside out.  Rich and full bodied, but with a velvety smooth palate.

Cedar Creek Platinum Pinot Noir 2008 $29.90

Review by Stefan

Elegant and refined aromas of raspberry and smoky cherry pair nicely with the velvety soft palate full of cherry, plum and clove flavours.  The finish is pleasant and lingers just long enough.  This is the perfect wine to pair alongside your holiday feast. 

 

Church and State Viognier 2011 $19.90

Review by Katie

Fresh Granny Smith apple nose complimented by tropical fruits, toasty almonds and nutmeg on the palate.  This is a great wine to accompany an evening of holiday festivities.  Try it with Poplar Grove’s Naramata Bench Blue cheese, Chicken Cordon Bleu or stuffed pork tenderloin.

Review by Tracy 

Gewürztraminer is a classic pairing with holiday fare. Off dry and simply delicious with turkey or pineapple clove ham. This wine is a multiple Gold Medal winner.
