It’s that time of year when we get to enjoy some extra special meals with loved ones (often with multiple dishes and courses, including rich desserts), so I’ve selected five new wines that all make great pairings for holiday dinners, including two dessert wines). In Upcoming Events its Winter Wineland, January 18-19, 2020, 11am-4pm each day. A great opportunity to meet winemakers, taste limited production wines, new releases or library wines. All participating wineries highlight a Vintage, Varietal or Vertical tasting for the weekend.

Radio-Coteau Lemorel Zinfandel, Sonoma Coast 2014 ~ An unfined and unfiltered jewel. One of the most distinctive Zinfandels I’ve tasted in at least a decade. Fort Ross Pinotage, Fort Ross Seaview Vineyard, Sonoma Coast 2014 ~ When I opened the pinotage, I poured a few ounces into a glass and experienced bright, red, sharp fruit with an amazing bright acidity throughout the palate and very firm tannins.
