Highflyer Centerline Red 2007 (Napa Valley, California)
December wines should do two things … taste delicious with the offerings of celebratory meals throughout the month, and for those of us with wine-loving friends and family, make great gifts (preferably without breaking the proverbial bank!) Highflyer Centerline Red 2007 (Napa Valley, California) is just that wine.
Blended from five California varietals sourced from some of the best vineyards in Napa, this wine is worthy of the aviation-centric representation of da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” that graces its label. Balanced, strong, powerful and elegant, Highflyer Centerline is bursting with flavors of blueberry jam, strawberries, cocoa and espresso. Balanced tannins and a lingering suede-like mouthfeel make this wine a great pair with all kinds of dishes (try it with a roast rack of lamb) but is delicate enough to enjoy unaccompanied by the glass.
As a gift for someone else, or a treat for yourself, this modern California blend will help make your month merry!
