Fathers everywhere, this one is for you -- and anyone looking for a gift to honor his or hers on Sunday.
VERY BIG DADDY: 2011 Samuel Adams Utopias ($150), the high-octane boundary-pusher, strong and bold, this year with notes of toffee, dried fruit; treat it like brandy. It's 27 percent alcohol by volume.
CAB DAD: 2007 Rubicon Estate CASK Cabernet Sauvignon ($75), an intense Rutherford cab from Francis Ford Coppola, concentrated, full of cherry and blackberry. 2008 Rodney Strong Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($25), plummy and inviting.
MERLOT DAD: 2008 Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Pinot Noir ($35), loaded with black cherry and some spice for a rich mouthful.
BABBO: 2005 Arnaldo-Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano ($60), a red star, distinctive, potent, luxurious.
PÈRE: A. de Fussigny XO Cognac ($110), an elegant union of Cognacs, with hints of dried fruit, licorice, hazelnut.
PAPÁ: 2007 Torres Salmos ($37), a soulful, fragrant, seamless red wine from the Priorat region of Spain.
