When the new year rolls around, maybe you don’t want to go hog wild, but you also don’t want to do the same old thing. Stop short of draining your bank account, but splurge a little. Start things on a high note with the 2009 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages Cabernet Sauvignon, a nicely complex Bordeaux-style blend from Sonoma County. A sip or two will reveal to you dark fruits, rich chocolate and spice, and the feeling that anything is possible this year. Pick up a bottle ($60) at Binny’s (multiple locations). — Michael Austin
