Love in a Bottle

OK - here it is everyone...the perfect wine to go with dark chocolate on Valentine's Day. I've been saying this all year, no lie. Another great by Susana Balbo... the blend of 44% Malbec, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Bonarda, 5% Syrah is amazing. It's around $30 a bottle.
Tasting notes: Wafting aromas of red currants, black cherry and mildly smoky and sweet vanilla oak. Layers of creamy currant fruit, dense black cherry, and notes of brown spice (cocoa, nutmeg). Keeps showing its stuff as it breathes in the glass. Perfect balance, great length and loaded with fine, ripe tannins for having with food or for aging. Cheers - Ali
