Wendy from Opici Wines joins us this Friday from 5pm-8pm.  She's got a great wine line-up for your Valentine, including a fresh 2015 Rose and a M ontepulciano d'Abruzzo to die for!  As a bonus, we've invited our dear friends from Chouquette Artisan Chocolates and Confections to share some of their best Valentine's Day collections.  It's quite simple, we sip wine and devour chocolate! 
Manifesto 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, North Coast...silvery straw color. Mild, earthy, musty aromas of dried citrus and hay with a soft, bright, dryish light body and a polished, fast kiwi, melon...

Redtree Chardonnay...opens with underlying aromas of lime and kiwi fruit and just a touch of French oak...

Chateau Beaulieu Coteaux D'Aix-En-Provence Rose 2015
Established in 1576 by Henri III, Chateau Beaulieu is the largest estate in the Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence appellation of southeastern France. The vineyards are located in the heart of a dormant volcano, which allows the vines to benefit from the unique composition and diverse range of soils. Composed of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau Beaulieu Rose is an aromatic, fruit-forward wine brimming with
bright, summery notes of strawberry, raspberry and wildflowers.  
Colimoro Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC
Bursting with aromas of dried cherries accented by a hint of spice. Medium in body, this is a fruit-forward wine balanced by moderate acidity and soft tannins. Aged in large Slavonian oak casks for 6 months, this is an easy-drinking wine best enjoyed young with everyday meals. $12/Bottle

Manifesto 2014 Zinfandel, Lodi...dark garnet color. Lively, fruity aromas of red plum, toasty vanilla, lingonberry, and cherry jam with a crisp, dry medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length blackberry, plum, cherry, and vanilla finish with chewy, dusty tannins and heavy oak...
