Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and we know what your Valentine wants most….WINE. We have 3 recommendations on the perfect bottle to gift your sweetheart this year to make sure this is a Valentine’s to remember.
Aubry is a classic Champagne from a family-owned and operated Premier Cru vineyard. It has classic flavors of lemon, pear, ginger, and crackers, with the perfect amount of sparkle. It’s primarily made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, but also contains a small amount of Petit Meslier, Arbanne, and Fromenteau. Pair this with a candlelight picnic featuring caviar, oysters, brie, and camembert, and your sweetheart is sure to swoon.
Roland La Garde Bordeaux
A Merlot heavy blend from Bordeaux’s Right Bank, this one is an adventure for the palate with historical significance. The grapes are from an area where Romans first planted in Bordeaux. With a medium-full body and medium tannin and acidity, this Bordeaux features umami, raspberry, blackberry, and vanilla flavors. The wine is complex and satisfying without pretension and is the perfect gift for someone with a discerning palate who appreciates history.
The Adega Tempranillo from Oregon is a stunner, both on the label and in the bottle. The full-bodied wine has flavors of cherry, plum, cedar, and leather and a beautifully full body. The wine feels round and lush in the mouth, and finishes smoothly. It’s the perfect wine to curl up with by a fire for a quiet, romantic night in.
