Ring in the New Year with a chocolate fondue party and Justin Wine

Fondu New Years Party

So, who here is entertaining for New Years Eve next week? We’re all about that glittery, sparkly, festive approach when it comes to a NYE party, but there is nothing like having a good solid theme to go with it. Something to do with one of our very fave holiday pairings, perhaps? As lovers of chocolate and wine (duhhh!) we decided to ring in the new year at Festoon with chocolate fondue and Justin Wine, particularly our fave bottle, Justin’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon ISOSCELES.

Fondu New Years Party ISOSCELES is a Cabernet Sauvignon blend supported by Cabernet Franc + Merlot that’s barrel aged for 21 months in 100% new French oak. With a cherry, vanilla, and cinnamon spice aroma, you can see why we chose it for our fondue party.

It’s kinda amazing how little ones needs to do to create that perfect New Years Eve vibe when decorating, you know? Just toss a little confetti across the table and voila!

Another reason Justin ISOSCELES is our pick for New Years? It’s the kind of wine that goes as perfectly with bites like fresh fruit and chocolate as it does with a more formal menu.

Tasting notes: Dry and full bodied, layered with red and black cherry, cassis and complex baking spice on the entry. Sweet tobacco and classic savory pencil-like notes of cedar and graphite with a little cocoa emerge on the crisp mid-palate with firm chewy tannins lasting into a long, complex finish that shows a parade of fruit and spice balanced with constantly evolving textures and savory notes.
