Valentine's Day is coming!
For some this is a holiday filled with joy, laughter and love. Others have a harder time. We came up with a few solutions that might help! All wines are sold at Cheese & Wine Traders with plenty of alternatives to make the day special no matter what!
GOING ON A BLIND DATE
Chatea de La Chaize- Brouilly
STAYING IN WITH YOUR WEIRD ROOMMATE
Earthquake Zinfandel- Lodi, CA
California Zins are amongst the highest-alcohol wines. This one is 15.5% ABV so... that will help. It's uber-dark chocolaty on the nose, where there are also aromas of black pepper, black cherry, raisin and leather. In the mouth, it has a lusciously smooth with flavors of spicy black cherry, plum and dark chocolate.
TRYING TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION
Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2013
You can talk about how it comes from super-old vineyards and it how well it goes with a variety of foods. The juicy palate tastes of black cherry, cinnamon, orange zest, and aromatic herb while its mineral vein is noticeable alongside smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Ruby red in color with aromas of cherry, red berries, plum, and pomegranate.
HANGING OUT WITH YOUR EX
WATCHING NETFLIX ALONE
Castello D'Abolla- Chianti Classico Riserva
It acts as your date in that it is intellectually stimulating and has a comforting and warm presence. Light ruby-red color with orange hues. Strawberry and other red fruits with notes of sage and spice cake. Vibrant and medium bodied revealing lively cherry and exotic spice that leads to polished tannins and a delicate finish.
