NYT Resolution for 2014: drink adventurously, drink Kabaj!

Kabaj Ravan

Here is New York Times columnist Eric Asimov’s latest New Year resolution: 20 adventurous wines for $20 to drink this winter. Some are white, some are red, and all should warm your heart but they should also stretch your comfort zone: they will introduce you to intriguing grapes as well as little-known appellations from wine-growing regions rich in history and culture and long wine-making traditions.

Besides the 2010 Kabaj Ravan from Goriška Brda in Slovenia listed in the article—“zesty and fresh with persistent, tangy flavors”—our portfolio contains plenty of intriguing wines for you to discover this winter.

With fresh oysters on the half shell and crabs, enjoy a crisp and mineral Hárslevelű from Hungary.

Experiment with skin macerated whites and try them with Swiss fondue or raclette.

Consider the Croatian grapes Plavac Mali and Babić as delicious alternative to Zinfandel.

Anyway, have fun! Happy Drinking and Happy New Year!
