I'm thinking about opening my bottle of 2005 Northstar Merlot from Walla Walla, WA.  I tasted this wine while I was up in Washington this summer, and loved it.  I picked up a bottle for a special occasion, and I think that Christmas would qualify as special.

We will also be drinking some Gloria Ferrer Royal Cuvee and eating some sushi to kick off the new year.  I think that the new year will start of awesome!  

What will you be drinking over the holidays?  Do you have anything special that you will be opening?
