Check out three new high-end sips you should be consuming this holiday season.
Ain’t it Grand?
The House of Marnier Lapostolle ushers in the fall season with the appearance of two new liqueurs. Hitting shelves this month, the limited-edition Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach ($40) offers “fine cognacs laced with orange essence and the natural raspberry and peach flavors.” The second new release, Grand Marnier Cuvée 1880 ($350), pays tribute to the Grand Marnier liqueur of 1880 and promises a “blend of aged, premium Grande Champagne XO Cognac and wild tropical orange parfum” contained in a beautiful hand-painted bottle with silver and gold accents. www.grand-marnier.com. —Victoria Fouts
Super sumptuous but approachable, the 2010 Robert Mondavi Winery Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon ($45) is the perfect red to carry you into the rich autumn months. This classic cab boasts a core of layered black fruit with rich mocha and toffee and subtle traces of fresh bay and black pepper. www.robertmondaviwinery.com.
