Forbes Names Rombauer Chardonnay One of Nine Best Wines To Gift In 2020

“You should never arrive at a party empty-handed, and if you arrive bearing a magnum of wine, you’ll definitely get invited back. A magnum bottle (the equivalent of two standard 750 ml bottles) helps take the pressure off your host, because there’s plenty to go round! Whether you go for festive bubbles or not, choose something that’s easy to drink, and therefore likely to appeal to most of the guests.”

10 Delicious Wines That Will Get You Out of Your Winter Slump

This is a single vineyard effort composed entirely of cabernet sauvignon from the namesake vineyard in St. Helena. One of the things that I do more when winter is over is grill. Put on a coat, warm up your grill, throw some steaks on it, and pair them with this cabernet. Red fruit aromas and a hint of savory herb mark the nose. Tons of red and black cherry fill the substantial palate. Minerals, bits of dust, and black tea are all part of the long finish. Good acid and firm tannins provide nice structure. This is a rich, but balanced cabernet that won’t overwhelm on a warm day.

My family’s love for dessert wines stems from a Christmas tradition to enjoy Rombauer Vineyards’ Joy Late Harvest Chardonnay after our multi-course, multi-hour holiday meals. This golden dessert wine from Napa’s Carneros district is opulently nutty with notes of candied lemon rind.”
