Andy Perdue’s top wines for 3 seasonal gatherings of eating, drinking and merriment

By Andy Perdue
Special to The Seattle Times


AS FALL TRANSITIONS to winter, we enter the holiday season, that time of year when wine lovers are expected to provide guidance — and wine — for upcoming holiday feasts. I look at this as an opportunity to share wines I’ve tasted and collected throughout the year, and to share gems from the cellar.

Here are a dozen for each holiday.


(Under Christmas list:)

Ginkgo Forest Winery 2012 petit verdot, Wahluke Slope, $30: This little-known winery near Mattawa is crafting delicious wines from estate grapes grown in the warm Wahluke Slope region. This is a big, round, ripe version of petit verdot that should be a hit with syrah lovers for its massive, yet still-jammy, midpalate.
