On the Sixth Day of Wine Gifts...

We're half way through our holiday round-up, and today's choice comes actually half as a suggestion from Twitter tweeps and half through my own experience with the product. So consider this a gift guide "slash" wine review.

On the sixth day of wine gifts...

St. Supery's 2-bottle "Essential" gift packs represent the most popular St. Supery wines. Each comes in a decorative gift box with personalized gift card. Options include:
  • Virtu/Elu - $79
  • Sauvignon Blanc/Cabernet - $52
  • Merlot/Cabernet - $52
  • Dollarhide Cabernet/Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc - $98
  • Rutherford Cabernet/Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc - $136
This 2-pack offer is available through December 14th - so hurry! Visit St. Supery to purchase. 

Need a suggestion on which to choose (segway into the psuedo wine review)? My pick goes to the Virtu/Elu combination. Both are blends of classic Bordeaux grape varietals from the St. Supery estate. Virtu is my personal favorite - its simple and refined taste pairs exquisitely with spicy foods. You can taste a variety of mouthwatering fruits, like peaches and nectarines, which do not overpower with sugar or acidic tastes. And the best can enjoy it now, or enjoy it later down the road.
