I do a lot of holiday shopping at Top Ten Liquors. I always have because people love getting nice wines as gifts. They get used, not returned. It’s a thoughtful gift as friends and family create and maintain bonds over a glass of wine. It’s also a great idea to take a nice bottle (or two) along with you to a gathering. Here are a few suggestions for you. These are some of the best picks for 2017. I neglected to put something sweet on the list and for that, I leave you with a great selection of Moscatos and other dessert wines readily available in our stores

Happy Holidays,

-Bill the Wine Guy

The 2012 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of cherry, raspberry, and chocolate that lead into flavors of cedar and vanilla with a lingering toasted oak finish. This highly structured wine was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully.

Talley Estate Chardonnay Arroyo Grande Valley 2014
1208994x Soft gold in color, the 2014 Estate Chardonnay is a beautiful expression of the character and style of the Arroyo Grande Valley. On the nose, vibrant aromas of pear and stone fruits are followed by a hint of subtle toasted oak. The palate is soft and plush with delicate acidity. Notes of peach, lemon oil, baked brioche and slivered almonds are complemented by minerality true to the Arroyo Grande Valley. Enjoy this classic Chardonnay with light seafood fares, such as steamed mussels or Dungeness crab.
