Twas 2 months before the holidays when all through the house, the closets were barren and there were really no mouses! Are you getting ready for the season of perpetual bliss? We are and that means taking stock of what we have available in the house, pantry and all other places and making sure we are stocked up and ready for all the festivities. Every year I go back to my list that I make and keep for reference, I know how many cards I need to send out, and to who, as well as the staples that make last minute get together s possible without the extra running. Sometimes I make sure that I grab mini stocking stuffers, because as any good shopper knows, when you start seeing the holiday items you grab them, because what you see is what is available and it won’t be restocked! Lavishly living the holidays out loud here are a few things we make sure we always have on hand before the parties start, or the trees are trimmed! As we move into the holidays here is my holiday sipping pleasure guide that will have you moving your wine about with ease and maybe finding a new one!
A great glass of wine can add a nice little bit of ‘red‘ to your season. I am all about the reds. Often I base it on the tasting notes, and other times I purchase just because I like the sound of the name. I know you are laughing, but my wine drinking hardly makes me the master of wine tasting, it’s more about the bottle and the taste than the cost. To make our season festive, I serve wine in crystal glasses or sometimes I use raffia and tie green and red to the stem ware, but often I use stemless wine glasses. For this I choose to use my special green and golden Wine Markers! These are the perfect way to celebrate the holidays, or even write someone’s name on.
If you are using boxed wine this holiday, you might want to read all about my Black Box Wine tasting experience recently and make sure to read my article all about the Boxxle, nothing short of the most amazing way to serve that boxed wine.
Eagle Glen a 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers tasting notes that boast a rich garnet color that will fade out to a rosy rim in the glass. The notes of blackberries and plum as well as cedar and spice will waft from the interior of the glass. Notes of vanilla and oak will be introduced to your palate as the initial taste begins. Eagle Glen is perfect for fall and/or winter holiday entertaining, Eagle Glen’s signature 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big tannic red that is sure to please any party-goer. Eagle Glen is an attractive varietal by itself and also mixes well in seasonal sangria, depending on your pleasure! Are you ready to deck the halls with a little bit of rosy red?
