Happy New Year! This is a perfect time to try a perfect wine and to find a festive glass to celebrate it with. Last year I became a La Crema wine club member and so far I’ve enjoyed every bottle that’s been delivered to my door. This week I tried the 2013 Fog Veil Pinot Noir and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved this bottle!
I have a set of wine glasses that we received for our wedding that I adore, but recently I was given the most festive, fun and adorable wine glass from my new coworker, Shannon. Come to find out, she made it and even sells them! If you’re looking for a gift for a friend (because giving should be a New Year’s resolution) or just something fun for yourself (don’t forget to give to yourself!), then you definitely need to check out Last Minute Gifts & More. Like them on Facebook too!
Back to the wine…from the tasting notes, “Generous in the glass, aromas of sweet spice, espresso and cassis spill onto a dense, complex palate filled with brambly fruit, black licorice and clove.” This pinot noir was extremely smooth with soft tannins and a long finish. It truly was spectacular.
This bottle retails on La Crema’s website for $50, but is $40 for wine club members. Trust me when I tell you that it’s worth the money to enjoy this bottle, especially if one of your resolutions is to drink good wine!
