5 wines that would make awesome additions to your Purim celebrations.

Wine is the drink of choice for Purim. It’s delicious, smooth, and comes in so many varieties that you can find the right wine for almost anyone’s tastes. There are mini-bottle options that make great additions to Mishloach Manot, and magnums (1.5L bottles) that make for great centerpieces at the festive meal. Here is a list of 5 wines that would make awesome additions to your Purim celebration.

Yarden Hermon Red Mini Bottles

At $5.99 these mini bottles of wine make a perfect addition to mishloach manot. Yarden is a brand that everyone knows and loves, and their Hermon series is an excellent wine for the price. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a bit of Cabernet Franc, this wine displays ample fruit and a beautiful color.

Casa de Cielo Cabernet Sauvignon

This affordable wine is amongst the most popular cabernets. It has a captivating label, and has much more complexity than the average wine at this price point. Sweet notes of cherry and mocha are complemented with a smoky richness and soft tannins.

Herzog Lineage Chardonnay

This classic Californian Chardonnay is crafted from top quality grapes sourced from the Herzog estate which produces some of America’s finest kosher wines. The buttery flavor profile and bright tropical fruit notes make this an irresistible partner for cheeses or fresh pasta dishes if you’re having a dairy meal.

Shiloh Privilege

Shiloh winery has a reputation for producing characterful Israeli wines which punch high above their price tag, especially the Shiloh Privilege. Composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Franc, the wine is aged in French oak for 9 months to add extra complexity. Plus, with a name like Privilege, this wine delights those with a corny sense of humor.

Flam Classico Magnum

Flam Classico is a tantalizing Bordeaux-style red blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot and 7% Syrah that is aged ten months in oak barrels. Big fruity aromas pop out from this wine with lots of blueberries, raspberries, and more red and black fruit. At 1.5L, having this bottle on the table makes for an extravagant celebration.
