A Snowy White
White Wine from California
"Conundrum is a true California wine, with grapes sourced from Napa, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Tulare counties. We often hear the phrase "exotic" when described. It’s a fitting portrayal; there is no other wine quite like it.
Floral bouquet nose with a dominance of honeysuckle. Muscat is the defining/alluring factor in the aroma of this wine. Enters round with a Chardonnay weight to it then quickly lightens up to reveal the additional varietals. Sauvignon Blanc adds an herbal element while the Viognier adds a spicy character. The Chardonnay brings weight mid palate and Muscat adds an undeniable honey character to finish things off.”
A Santa Suit Red
Chile, South America
"Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding dark ruby red wine with bell pepper, smoke and eucalyputus aromas. The wine is aged for 18 months in one-, two and three-year-old French oak barrels, and then aged a further 2 months after bottling. It is an appetizing, smooth, well-rounded and tasteful wine. Black currants flavors, well-balanced with a long finish."

A Rosé Cheek
Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut Rose Cava
Rosé from Spain
60% Pinot Nior, 40% Trepat
"Beautiful scents of raspberry and cherry on the nose with fresh, clean strawberry and cherry flavors in the mouth and a consistent bead. The finish is clean and crisp and invites another sip. Cristalino Brut Rose Cava is an excellent match for fried appetizers such as calamari or light desserts such as creme brulee. It is also excellent on its own or with fresh fruit. Did you get a bottle with a gold label rather than this white label? No worries, it’s still the same great Cava. Cristalino is undergoing a label change and released some bottles with the original packaging and some with the white label packaging."

A Snowflake Sparkler
Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label
Non-Vintage from Champagne, France
"Clicquot’s signature non-vintage Brut is loved all over the world for its crisp, full flavors, consistent quality and celebratory yellow label. This classical dry Champagne is a blend of two-thirds black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) for body, balanced with one-third Chardonnay for elegance. It has a fine persistent sparkle and golden Champagne color."

Riesling from Columbia Valley, Washington
"This Riesling exudes mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. After a decade we have truly found our ‘Eroica style,’ striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced minerality."
