For The Best Valentine’s Day With Your Sweetheart
Ready to get in the mood? Here are the best wines for Valentine’s Day for a romantic evening with your beau.
This exciting, yet friendly wine bursts at the seams with aromas of macerated tart cherries, pomegranate and notes of earth of pine. The flavors combine both sweet and tart with a fruit-driven front palate and very subtle oak influence. The finish is bright, slightly herbal and delicate making. Pair it with a platter of smoked oysters and caviar, and let the night take its course with one of the best red wines for Valentine’s Day. ($28)
The flagship wine of Bell Mountain Ranch encompasses a rich profile of summer ripe berries, cigar boxes, chocolate-covered strawberries and blue fruits. With hints of lavender, a touch of sea spray springs from the glass. Allow the tingling tannins to leave you craving another sip or a juicy steak to share. ($60)
For The Best Valentine’s Day With Your Gals
Toast to an amazing Galentine’s Day with your besties! These ladies will always have your back.
Brilliant rose gold bubbles, delicate berry fruit aromas and a seamless texture reveal the precision craftmanship behind this classic expression. This sparkling rosé is made using the traditional method and creates a bold yet elegant wine with balanced acidity and lively aromas of white-raspberry and white-peach. Host a potluck dinner, get your favorite rom-com in the queue and join your ladies for a night of laughs. ($29)
Ready to pre-game? Before you and your girl group head out for the evening, pour a glass of Ten of Cups Brut California NV. Made with a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, it’s sourced from some of California’s most notable vineyards. Vibrant, bright and aromatic with notes of tropical fruit, it’s the perfect way to start your night. ($25)
For The Best Valentine’s Day Gift
Heading to a party for your Valentine’s Day celebration? Here are some great wines to gift.
L’Ermitage, Roederer Estate’s special tête de cuvée, is a sparkling wine made only in exceptional years from pre-selected, estate-grown grapes. Fine tiny bubbles and a long-lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage cuvée. Offering aromas of hazelnut and roasted pecans opening to some clove spiciness, these bubbles will certainly liven conversations. ($68)
With its medium-dark ruby color and aromas of fresh red berry, pomegranate and bark spice, this well-built wine will be a party favorite. The 2018 Domaine Anderson Estate Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with hearty Fall roasts, umami-rich mushroom risotto and a variety of cheeses like gorgonzola. ($45)
