Our sister brand, Food & Wine, really know their stuff when it comes to all things vino. Here are Wine Classics To Try: The Next Great Classics. Perhaps a bit pricey for the millennial wino, but without a doubt, well worth a try to be on your way to wine connoisseur status. Cheers to that!
1) 2005 Niepoort Charme ($98)
Douro Valley, Portugal
With a sweet smelling aroma of tea, tobacco, balsamic, and fresh fruit — we adore this velvety, complex wine . As you sip, you’ll begin to notice surprising hints of coffee all the way throughout .
2) 2006 Descendientes de José Palacios Villa de Corullón ($40)
Swish this Spanish grape around for a deep wine bursting with smokey raspberry, rosy plums, and earthy boysenberry.
3) 2006 Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir ($63)
Central Otago, New Zealand
Elegantly fragrant, this fruit-filled, New Zealand burgundy shows a savory strength like no other.
Since we’re all things food here at MyRecipes, here’s a list of pairings to go with your tall glass of red.
