Happy Holidays everyone. As you possibly get ready for some special meals for the season I thought I’d put forth some wine suggestions based on popular food choices. The Chateau Recougne is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Milhade family. It is a perennial best buy from Robert Parker and a lovely, elegant pour for beef. The Bollig-Lehnert Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling Kabinett has a beautiful honey and citrus flavor that is superb with a smoky ham. The sweetness of this one is nicely tempered by the bright acidity. The Adelsheim Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a silky red with soft tannins to pair well with goose, turkey, chicken or salmon. This wine comes from one of the pioneer families in Oregon wine history as they have made great wines since the early 1970s. All three of these will serve you well for holiday festivities!

Enjoy!

Prime Rib – Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superieur 2012
Chateau-Recougne-2012-Label
Spicy, ripe and fruity, this wine has enough structure to give shape to the broad black fruits that are the stars. A smoky element comes from just the right amount of wood aging. Drink from 2017.”
