Matt Kettmann, Contributing Editor (California)\r\n\r\nCasa Real Gran Singani (Bolivia): I used to travel a lot, including one trip biking in South America. Singani is a liquor made from Muscat of Alexandria grapes that we drank with lime juice at the end of each day. So take me back, gift givers, to my more adventurous youth!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAnne Krebiehl, Contributing Editor (Austria)\r\n\r\nMuhr-Van der Niepoort 2012 Samt & Seide Blaufr\u00e4nkisch (Carnuntum, Austria):\u00a0Samt & Seide stands for silk and velvet. I love smooth, elegant reds that have depth despite being slender. Its peppery, cherry fruit will be a delicious treat.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMichael Schachner, Contributing Editor (South America & Spain)\r\n\r\nCh\u00e2teau Montrose 1989 Saint-Est\u00e8phe (Bordeaux, France):\u00a0It\u2019s the first classified-growth Bordeaux I ever bought. The wine remains in my cellar, waiting. But with two bottles, I\u2019d be willing to open one on New Year\u2019s Eve.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nVirginie Boone, Contributing Editor (California)\r\n\r\nStony Hill 2001 Chardonnay (Napa Valley, California):\u00a0I was lucky enough to enjoy this wine over the summer with Top 40 Under 40 sommelier Andy Chabot. Its minerality and freshness proved that yes, Santa, California Chardonnays do age.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPaul Gregutt, Contributing Editor (Oregon)\r\n\r\nQuinto do Noval 1917 Vintage Port (Douro, Portugal):\u00a0I\u2019m a sucker for anniversary wines, and this would celebrate the 100th birthday of my late father. Croft, Delaforce, Graham\u2019s, Taylor\u2019s and others declared that year. But I want the Quinta do Noval. My father was a man who appreciated the best.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCarrie Dykes, Assistant Tasting Coordinator\r\n\r\nEnlightenment Wines Memento Mori Dandelion Wine:\u00a0To receive something made nearby is charming, and these products embody the spirit of New York\u2019s Hudson Valley. The artwork, CSA-driven distribution, local ingredients and low-tech fermentation result in a product that\u2019s approachable yet avant garde.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJoseph Hernandez, Senior Associate\u00a0Digital Editor\r\n\r\nGeorg Breuer 2009 Berg Schlossberg Riesling (Rheingau, Germany):\u00a0This wine has haunted me since I first tasted it while visiting the region. I\u2019m disappointed in myself for not snagging a bottle, so I\u2019d love it if I found some in my stocking this year.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLauren Buzzeo, Senior Editor and Tasting Director\r\n\r\nDeschutes Brewery\u2019s Black Butte 27th Anniversary Reserve:\u00a0It\u2019s one of the most cellarworthy beers produced, and I\u2019ll need to fill the spot where the 22nd Anniversary Reserve lived after I drink it on Christmas Eve.
