  • The Rare Wine Co. Madeira, Boston Bual Special Reserve ($46.50) For the sophisticated palate or U.S. history buff: a zesty, sweet-tangy, intense drink to sip by the fire after dinner while reading about Jefferson.
  • Le Ragose Amarone della Valpolicella 2004 ($55) A veronese showstopper made from semidried grapes, for the Italophile on your list. Layered, silky mouthfeel.
  • Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 ($80) Want to make a big splash with a lover of cutting-edge cabs? This restrained yet rich beauty is from esteemed Sonoma winemaker Richard Arrowood's new organic winery.
