Errázuriz Don Maximiano Named Varietal Blends-Red 2009

Valle de Aconcagua, Chile

European elegance meets New World cncentration and power. This wine has it all: spectacular dark fruit flavour, great strcture and a finish that (almost) lasts until you open the next bottle (you hope). This is Chile's icon flagship wine: drink it to understand both where the country has been and where it's going. Superb!

Modus Ruffino 2011

Tuscany I.G.T., Italy

A seductive nose of violets and wild blackberries gives way to a much more robust palate of fleshy black fruit, smoke, tar, graphite and oak. This truly is a Super Tuscan blend that delivers year after year. Layered, complex and offering a long, satisfying finish. Decant 1-2 hours. Pair with prime rib.

Inniskillin Vidal Sparkling Icewine 2012

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada

Although Inniskillin didn't invent Sparkling Icewine, they have perfected it. This vidal grape based bubbly has all the decadence you want in a dessert wines with the heaviness, high sweetness or high alcohol. The bubbles have a wonderfully drying effect in contrast to the wine's sweetness. Pair this sparkler with pâté or foie gras.
