A sweet red wine, this black Muscat is a surprise for the special event. It is oozing with blackberry and raspberry zest with a dash of bubble-gum tang. Surprisingly, this one complements well with chocolate puddings.
2015 Château Saint Julian Bordeaux Supérieur
If you’re on tight budget, this red wine is of good value. Plus, it’s slightly spicy with some hints of coffee bean and berries. Overall, if you want something unique for this once in a year celebration, then try this one.
2014 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Chateau Feret Lambert Bordeaux Superieur
Make the gathering more memorable by adding this fruit-forward and solid-colored red into the table. And, you will be disappointed with the melange of black cherry, toasty mocha and cassis hints that match the dark and earthy core.
2014 Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel
From the prominent Zindafel producer in California, the Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel spells out crisp acidity and lush black fruit flavor. Not only that, you’ll love the splash of spiciness that brings out the perfect red balance.
2014 Flichman Malbec Tupungato
If you prefer a more fruity wine, the Flichman Malbec Tupungato is such a charm. A full-bodied and flavourful red with smacks of blackberry and slight mushroom notes, pair this drink with your favorite grilled meat and vegetable.
