Father’s Day is about spending time with and appreciating the man who raised you. It doesn’t all have to be about the stereotypical ties and socks. When it comes to finding the perfect gift for dad, there’s nothing better than kicking your feet up, grabbing some wine, and sharing conversation over the perfect bottle. Here are five big red wines to share with your dad on Father’s Day.
San Simeon Cabernet Sauvignon
A big wine with dark raspberry and black cherry notes. The spicy, slightly oaky flavors pair perfect with grilled meat and barbecue.
Montes Purple Angel
Purple Angel is a huge Chilean Carmenère — the signature grape of the country. It hits on everything you want on Father’s Day: earthy, blueberry, round, and ripe.
Dare by Viader Cabernet Franc
Vanilla, sweet caramel, and a hint of tobacco. If your dad loves wine that makes a statement, he won’t be able to resist this powerful Cabernet Franc.
Vina Alberdi La Rioja Alta Reserva Rioja
On the brighter side with notes of deep cherry and ripe, red strawberry. Coffee and caramel notes round it out for a wine with a lingering finish.
An intense wine that’s full-bodied with aromas of cherry and plum. This wine can take you through an entire meal — whether that meal consists only of barbecue meat or entirely of fresh berry salad.
