These four versatile crowd-pleasers, curated by sommelier and renowned wine writer Lauren Friel,will stand up to a wide range of hors d’oeuvres and meals, but are wonderful all by themselves. Perfect for hosting or attending holiday celebrations.
In the 'RED ONLY' curation, we replace the non-reds in the Party Pairings box with:
A delightful holiday party crowd pleaser! Brilliant and ruby-hued in the glass. Aromas of tart red fruits like currant and pomegranate dominate, giving way to earthier notes of licorice, spice, and black tea. The palate is vibrant and bright, with similar fruit notes and a long, dried floral finish. The tannins are structured but well-integrated, meaning you can enjoy this with everything from hearty seafood dishes, to baked ham or standing rib roast.
Folk Machine ‘Parts & Labor’
Dark fruit and warm spice—perfect holiday flavors. A deep plum color in the glass, this wine’s complexity jumps out at you right away. Fresh blackcurrant and plum aromas balance with warm baking spices and richly integrated tannins. The finish is long, with savory earth and herb notes. The winemaker calls this “California bistro wine,” so break out the bavette and frites, or kick it old school with some French onion soup. As for us, we’ll drink it with whatever our friends bring over.
