What to Drink With Your Valentines
Best Wine for Valentines Day
Barolo. Like love, it's both delicate and powerful. Gianfranco Alessandria 2009 Barolo is my pick at the moment. Delicate roses meet deep, dark earth on the nose leads into a palate that's super smooth with fresh red and black cherries and beautiful peppery spice. It's the perfect splurge for a special night.
My indispensable Dessert Wine
Valdespino Contrabandista Medium-Dry Amontillado Sherry. Nutty, with hints of maple and cooked apricot flavors this is the perfect wine for a cheese course--especially if you're sharing with people who aren't crazy about dessert wine.
