Whether you’re bringing wine to a dinner party, giving it to a friend or host, or enjoying it with a loved one, Patrick Brennan of Haskell’s of Excelsior has you covered this holiday season. Here are two of his favorite dessert wine picks.
Moscato D’Asti Batasiolo $12.99/750ml
The market for inexpensive domestic moscato has erupted recently, but this delicious offering comes from the sweet wine’s home in Piedmont. With a rich profile of ripe pear and apple, and a slight effervescence, this low-alcohol (5.5 percent) wine is great to serve with dessert.
Quinta Do Crasto LBV $24.99/750ml
Port wines are great for the winter months, and late bottle vintage ports are a perfect way to approach vintage port quality for less cash. This offering from Quinta Do Crasto has a smoky-sweet profile with notes of cedar.
