Wine aficionado Drew Barrymore loves this vibrant wine that comes from Monterey County, California. The Carmel Road Pinot Noir features fresh fruit flavors and aromas with light hints of tobacco and spice.
2. Route Stock Cabernet Sauvignon
This Napa Valley wine is barrel-aged for 21 months, giving drinkers the flavors of cedar with every sip. The rich, bright aftertaste brings to mind plums, coffee, and bay leaf—a savory mix with every sip.
3. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Doc Ilico
The ruby red, woody flavor in this tasty red comes from its time spent aging in Slavonian oak barrels for 10 months. It has a deep flavor with a purple hue and a lingering aftertaste of licorice.
4. Ayala Brut Majeur
Celebrate the holiday season with the gift of champagne from your local wine shop. This unique bubbly is made with three types of grapes: Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, making for a fresh, low-alcohol drink.
5. District7 Pinot Noir
If the person you’re buying for prefers umami with their wines, they’ll love Pinot Noir from District7. This savory variety goes well with dinner or as a marinade. The gift recipient will enjoy the earthy notes as they sip this during the holiday dinner.
