Christmas Wines. - TheEngineer - 12-21-2012 07:54 AM

Well,...It will be the 15th straight year that we will be going home to Toronto for Christmas.

As such, over time, I've left a bit of a stash of wines at my parents place for wines that can be opened in more than one bottle quantities and can be consumed immediately. while not very interesting, they at least will be fine. So my wine list this year will be

(1) Molly Dooker, can't remember which label but one of the lower end ones.
(2) Chateau Bel Air
(3) Local wines such as the 2007 Tritius

Hopefully will have enough there to hold out Smile

Wishing everyone a Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Taking Francois Labet red & white burgs to nephew's place, which is serving as "family central" this year (including Longmorn scotch and Bushmill's Irish as the spirits of contemplation). Merry Christmas to all!

Haven't decided yet what I'll pull. We're having lunch with one of my daughters, her hubby and G/D in Carefree at Binks cafe today. 'Kaint bring me own so have no earthly what I'll have outside of a killer time with the folk. WW

We have to do two dinners because half the family is coming on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas. We have to leave for church at 5 pm on Christmas Eve, so have to be reasonably sober at that point. Thinking that four of us will share one bottle with beef tenderloin en croute. On Christmas we don't have to go anywhere and we are serving ham.

SO! I'm thinking 2007 Pessagno, Lucia Highlands Vineyard, Pinot Noir with the tenderloin and a couple of bottles of Knapp Finger Lakes Merlot with the ham.

Any other suggestions?
