There's something about uncorking a magnum at a big dinner party that makes it more festive. Of course, a magnum is also the gift that's certain to make a big, memorable impression. Even better, this is a very approachable, drinkable Rhône red – a 50-50 blend of old-vine Mourvèdre and Grenache aged in oak for one year. The wine was crafted by two friends who studied winemaking together 20 years ago, and they're still close today. After all, that's what the best wines do – keep people together. There are few better bottles for the buck that you can have on a diner-party table this year.

"Sleek, featuring pure black cherry and black currant fruit, with a lovely graphite frame and a lingering black tea note on the perfumy finish. Drink now through 2014."
