Calon Segur

A great bottle of Bordeaux is always a welcome addition to one’s dinner table, and Calon Ségur even has a heart-framed label. 1988 was a classic vintage for Bordeaux, and it flies a bit under the radar, so even though it’s not inexpensive ($125), it’s a pretty good value. Other vintages can be found for less but may not be as perfectly mature as a well preserved bottle of the ‘88.

  • How about Passion, from Icicle Ridge Winery in Washington state? Cherry wine with chocolate... hard to go wrong with that! Also, Beaujolais should typically be consumed right away, not left to age. Have you tried that 2009 lately? It may still have life in it but hard to say.

    @chitownwineguy A solid Pinot Noir from Oregon, such as Argyle, would be nice and not break the bank...Assuming all of your $$$ was spent on dinner/a gift/etc...etc...

    Finca Antigua Merlot 2006. Just hard to find unless you order a case, at least in Canada. On the other hand, it settles what to drink on the 14th of Feb. until the year 2023...

  • A Moscato d' asti is always a great choice for a celebration. You can even get a pink one that is perfect for Valentine's Day!
