WINE TIPS FOR CHRISTMAS

First, and most important, you want lively wines.  A lot of words connote liveliness, like fresh, lithe and energetic. These words technically refer to one key quality in a wine, acidity.Wines with just the right amount of acidity enable a thrilling high-wire act. With the right acidity, wine maintains a tension that invigorates and refreshes.

Here’s what you don’t want:

• Overly tannic wines. Tannins are not necessarily bad, but over the long haul of a holiday feast the astringency that comes with them can be fatiguing. Which wines will reliably be tannic? Young reds that are intended for aging, for the most part. 

• Oaky wines. Overt oak flavors can clash with many foods, and oak tannins can be more obtrusive than grape tannins. Oakiness can appear in many different sorts of wines. 

• High-alcohol wines. It’s a long day — the higher the alcohol, the quicker the trip to the couch. You can easily find high-alcohol wines, say, those above 14 percent, that taste good. But this isn’t the day for them. How can you tell? Alcohol content is right on the label.

• Transgressive wines. Thanksgiving is a time for making people happy, not for persuading them to drink avant-garde styles that you love but that may bewilder mainstream drinkers. You don’t have to sacrifice principles or suppress your own tastes, just look for styles that can be easily understood by most people
