Red Wine

Balb├ís Reserva Tempranillo 2012, Ribera Del Duero D.O., Spain: Love the nose on this Spanish red with aromas of fig, plum and black pepper; dry and robust with salumi, cigar box, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours on the palate. Tempranillo food pairings: rack of lamb, rib eye steak, pork crown roast. Drink: 2020 - 2024 85183 15% XD 750 mL $24.95 Score: 91/100. December 2020. Top Rated Red Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart

Sparkling Wine

Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Ace of Spades Champagne, Champagne A.C., France: This elegant sparkling wine from Champagne comes in lacquered bottle and gift box -- very blingy package that would make Jay-Z forget the spat with Beyonce's sister Solange. A superb Champagne that's crisp, toasty and robust. Good acidity for shellfish. Pricey yes, but they're throwing in the gold for free ;) Champagne food pairings: lightly spiced curry dishes, lamb stew, white turkey meat, tacos. Drink: 2016 - 2023 220244 12.5% D 750 mL $319.95 Score: 94/100. December 2020. Top Rated Sparkling Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
