Just in time for the holidays – when generosity is large and wallets are small – four Un4Seen wines come with a gift tag of $10.

“Founded on a simple belief that rules are made to be broken, the first Un4Seen wine we ever made had one objective: to be the best possible we could make.” said winemaker Karen Birmingham. “To us the number 4 will always represent rewriting the rules to make great wine.”

The 2011 chardonnay from Lodi appellation has tropical pineapple and kiwi aromas followed by green apple and lemony flavors with a whisper of butterscotch. Try this with chicken salad or grilled white fish.

Stainless steel tanks captured the 2012 sauvignon blanc selection. Opaque in the glass, the wine erupts with bright tropical fruit and Meyer lemons. These flavors are lifted to a crisp, grassy finish that is the perfect match for creamy cheeses.

For a dessert wine with an air of class, pour a chilled glass of 2012 moscato from Clarksburg appellation. The selection is sugary but does not overwhelm the senses. Serve it with salted nuts or marinated strawberries with mint leaves.

Rounding out the quartet is the 2010 cabernet sauvignon from Lodi that has backbone and intensity. The wine is deep red purple with impressive tiers of red and black fruits. It is full-bodied with sassy notes that are the perfect match for pulled pork sandwiches and loaded burgers.

But wait, there’s more. Winemaker Birmingham also crafts the luscious 2012 Assembly ($14.99), an old vine zinfandel from Lodi. This ‘assembly’ of premium wine lots forms a complete, whole, yielding a regionally impressive zin that is greater than the sum of its parts.

This selection has decadent aromas of cherries and raspberries with a well-balanced palate and soft tannins.

Pour this with grilled wild salmon or roast turkey.
