Dad’s been cooped up like we all have and needs a break. A tie or socks or maybe even pants won’t be of much use this summer. Give him a 2020 Father’s Day Wine Gift that better reflects his personality. Think more off-beat, not about stuff to wear or hold on to, but something to enjoy. Gift him an experience he’ll remember and want to repeat. We have a few suggestions.
Dad’s Jonesing to Get Outside!
Dad wants out of the house. Use your imagination to come up with an unusual activity, like creating a mini social-distancing play or comedy show to put on in your backyard or a nearby park.
Bring a picnic and serve it up with a well-chilled 2018 Broadside Chardonnay Wild Ferment. Prop Dad up in a lawn chair with a cup of wine and a little snack, and he’ll be applauding.
This well-priced, sustainably farmed Chardonnay will blow his mind. He’ll never be dismissive of white wine again. A lush, weighty wine that coats the mouth, the Broadside reveals its Paso Robles home. Sniffing this nectar brings up images of ripe summer tree fruit. Lingering tropical flavors with some smoky, spicy touches will have him dreaming of Jamaica.
Dad will relax like never before as he lounges in the shade watching his family perform just for him, a refreshing glass of Broadside in hand. At only $16.99 per bottle plus free shipping on six or more, he’ll have plenty left for the encore.
Dad Wants to Branch Out!
Dad has been eating and drinking more or less the same stuff for the past two months and is craving something new. Enough with the beer or cider. No more tequila or cocktails. Summer is here, and wine is the answer.
A six-pack of 2013 Jim Barry McRae Wood Shiraz Clare Valley Australia will set him up nicely for the summer. This 90+ point wine is a fav for its depth and length. It's no lightweight, just like Dad, this wine drinks like twice the price.
A more energetic cousin of the deep, dark, and famous The Armagh, this Shiraz is perfect for a summer barbecue. The dark berry flavors, think black raspberry and blackberry, touched with herbs will compliment a rack of ribs. With an added earthiness, this wine will have your Dad singing for more.
Break out the karaoke and make it a night. Free shipping on six or more so Dad can practice all summer.
Dad LOVES Sideways!
Your Dad thinks he’s funny. He laughed SO hard during Sideways that he almost started drinking Merlot. Because his sense of humor resides at the far edges of comedy, you’re having a difficult time figuring out the right Father’s Day gift.
Setup a weekly comedy night with Dad starting on Father’s Day. Think Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm or Garry Shandling (see The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling, a documentary by Judd Apatow, or The Larry Sanders Show.)
Order a case of 2014 Wind Gap Pinot Noir Amaya Ridge Vineyard Santa Cruz, spice up some popcorn, and turn up the speakers. Free shipping on six+ bottles.
Finding such a quality Pinot Noir at less than $30 is no joke. This natural, lower alcohol wine won’t mess with Dad’s comedy chops. He’ll appreciate the depth and aromatics of this beauty alongside a charcuterie platter. Let the laughs begin.
Dad Drinks Only Napa Valley!
Some Dads just know what they like, and they stick with it. Forever a classy favorite, Cakebread Cellars always delivers. The 2017 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, crafted from estate fruit and from top growers, expresses the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dad will be thrilled when he opens a case of this wine (free shipping on six+ bottles!) With textbook aromas of lush blackberry and dark chocolate and flavors of black fruit with chewy tannins, this well-balanced wine will soothe Dad’s soul.
Let him impress all his friends with this compelling wine, though he might want to keep this one to himself to enjoy on the back deck in the late evening throughout the summer. Mom can add the occasional steak and make Father’s Day an ongoing occurrence.
