What to Drink With Your Valentines

 


Next » 1 of 12
Experts Opine Holidays often carry heavy weight. The expectations included in say a New Year’s Eve, or Valentine's Day are enough to cause one undue panic. Well, we’re here to help you handle that panic, and bring your expectations in-line with reality, at least as far as your wine selection is concerned. You’re on your own for the rest of the details. Don’t screw up the gift!

We’ve asked our favorite wine writers what their  perfect Valentine’s Day wine is, and they’ve given us a fabulous range of wines to choose from. Read their thoughts for great inspiration and guidance this Valentine’s Day. On that note, I am a big fan of dessert wines for V-Day, so I also asked them to list their faves. Offering a little of my own guidance on the matter.

    I have been a fan of dessert wines since the mid 70's and was a bit surprised to not see any Beerenauslese or Australian Tawny listed. Mid to lower Mosel Beerenauslese get my vote. Coming in at a close second are the Tawnies from Morris of Australia. I should mention Wente's Late Harvest Riesling as well, since it is a winner as well.

    I like @Zuiko's choices, but I would suggest a "4 sips of each" tasting between any of those and a bottle of Hirschbach & Sohne's 2011 bottling of Piesporter Michaelsberg Riesling Auslese @ $ 13.00/ bottle... (or less). That addition won't set you back much more and will provide an interesting "bang for the buck" comparison.

    C'mon guys. Is everybody afraid being the one who picks the obvious? GDP came close when he suggested Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon as an alternative to one of the Valentine's Day light meals the other day, but how can nobody pick Terra Valentine Amore?

    -- It has "Valentine" in the name.

    -- It has a heart on the label.

    -- It also has "Love" in the name.

    Sheesh!
