So Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and you need a Valentine vino to compliment the chocolates and roses, something that’s not too expensive, something to win points in the romance department. Think red!
I’m playing it safe and going with one of my favorite wines reviewed last year - Apothic Red, a full bodied red blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. It has an intense dark fruit flavor with hints of mocha and vanilla.
At $14 a bottle, Apothic Red is my can’t-go-wrong recommendation for toasting Valentine’s Day. Cheers!
Disclosure: I’m not a sommelier or even a wine snob. I’m just a regular guy who loves wine. I frequently participate in food and wine chats on Twitter where I share what I like and I learn from others what they like. From time to time winemakers and marketers will send me a bottle of wine to review. If I like it, I’ll tweet about it and possibly even write a blog post about it. If I don’t, you’ll never see it mentioned. I am not paid to review wines. The wine I am sent is my only compensation.
