Nothing says fall quite like the warmth and richness of a good bottle of red wine. If you’re like me, red wine summons up images of crisp air, holiday meals, and nights spent cozied up next to a fire. The best thing about reds is their versatility and the depth of flavor they can add to a meal or a moment. Whether you’re hosting this year’s holiday party or spending a quiet evening in, there are two reds perfect for any festive occasion or celebration, big or small.
NOS Teroldego Rotaliano Riserva by Mezzacorona is a deep ruby red wine with intense flavors like blackberry and black currant which are heightened by aromas of truffle, leather, vanilla and oak. Well balanced and full-bodied, this wine is a match made in heaven for rich seasonal favorites like roasted red meats and a well-constructed cheese board. The second wine is also by Mezzacorona and brings many similar flavors to the table, with slightly fruiter undertones. Cliffhanger Vineyards Proprietary Red Blend is a beautiful garnet color with spicy notes and juicy berry flavor in the glass and comes dressed to impress in a striking black bottle with a matte geometric print label. This wine embodies grace and elegance and serves perfectly as the base for mulled wine, seasonal sangria, or something to bring to a friend’s dinner party (wine is always the best gift).
