At some point around the fourth day of Christmas, you are going to need some wine. If not to toast to the holiday, you may need it to take the edge off from hanging out with the in-laws too much.
These are our four best holiday wine recommendations, and they are all under $20 (because you’ve spent enough money this holiday season).
Piattelli Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
-Hand picked, destemmed, and ripened below the Andes Mountains at 3,527 feet, this Cabernet just has a way of making any occasion better.
Charles Cimicky Autograph Shiraz
-With flavors of plum, fruitcake (good fruitcake), baking spice, cedar, and licorice, Cimicky’s Autograph Shiraz offers an wonderfully intense holiday flavor.
BenMarco Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
-Aged with a combination of French and American Oak, this Cabernet was grown in the high desert, where its flavors have matured slowly, which speaks in its rich and concentrated flavor.
Hogwash 2012 Rose
-Some people claim California grows the best grapes, which makes Hogwash quite possibly the best Rose for under $20.
