Give Gold: Jada 2019 88 Viognier
All that glitters: Jada’s 2019 “88” is a gorgeous 100% Viognier that dazzles with solid gold glamor. Fermented and aged in new French oak barrels (and finished with a touch of neutral and stainless steel) this white is far from wallflower. Gift an exotic nose of orange blossom and magnolia, scented beeswax, and vibrant traces of Meyer lemon oil. Yes, this does sound like a killer perfume! With enough fresh acidity to support the layers of flavors on the finish, including white flower, Asian pear, and a hint of freshly baked Brioche, this one knows how to steal the spotlight. Go ahead, take this golden opportunity to knock their stockings off.

Give Pink: Kiamie Wine Cellars 2019 Grenache Rosé
A touch of blush: Pale salmon in the glass, Kiamie Cellar’s romantic rosé dazzles in well-concentrated aromas of wet stone, strawberry patch, and delicate peppery spice. With a pleasing ripeness and plenty of fruit on the palate (including cold-pressed watermelon juice adding to the exotic mélange), this bottle is a go-to for easy sipping (and stellar gifting) all year long. After all, the holidays don’t always mean shivering and bundling up. In Paso Robles Wine Country, we’re all about still sipping rosé on the patio all holiday long!

Give Ruby: Écluse 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Rudolph’s pick: Écluse’s ruby red wine is as jolly as they come. Aromas of cocoa and toasted marshmallow take you back to waiting for Santa to shimmy down the chimney. The palate is full of joyous holiday fun, including ripe black cherry, dark chocolate and lots of spice. Incredibly rich and luscious, a smooth finish leaves you spellbound by flavors of coffee and just a hint of smokey coal. This year, give them something truly elegant, silky and smooth—far better than a cashmere sweater.

Give purple: 2015 Treana Red
Regal and ready to drink: An impressive purple-black core gives this rich red a luxurious quality. A refined, holiday-worthy offering from Hope Family Wines, this benchmark bottle will charm your loved one with a palate of freshly picked blackberries, muddled black and red currants, dried cranberries and clove. Truly, the flavor is just as sumptuous: a cascade of caramelized oak notes are spiced by a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, plus waves of ripe blackberries and pomegranate fruit. Even better, you can purchase the wine in an attractive three liter format, ensuring that everyone can raise a glass to the holiday. If this bottle could take a bow, it certainly would.

Give sunshine: Cass Winery’s 2018 Late Harvest Roussanne
Paso Robles sunshine in a bottle? We’ve found it. Cass Winery’s 2018 Late Harvest Roussanne is juicy and sweet, the perfect holiday dessert to share with your favorite friends and family. A vibrant yellow hue and perky aromas of white peach, crushed honeysuckle and zesty orange blossom seem to greet the nose with a welcoming wink. This year, supply your loved ones with a wonderland of honeycomb, lemon meringue pie and candied pineapple. Trust us, it’s better than candy. Even pie has trouble competing with this one!
