The holidays are filled with family and shopping—can you say “stress.” While we have no remedy for family issues, we have compiled a list of our favorite gifts from CDLT and the Half Moon Bay Wine & Cheese Co. (our companion company) that might help alleviate your shopping woes.

From Clos de la Tech

  1. 2012 Santa Cruz Mountains Estates ($45 per bottle)
    As the name suggests, this is mountain Pinot to the core. Dark, powerful and packed with fruit.

    Highly charged aromatics of blueberry, plums and violets. Exotic and structured.
  3. 2012 Domaine Lois Louise “Twisty Ridge” ($62 per bottle)
