Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to cheer to love and enjoy a bottle of wine. The Calistoga-based, award-winning vineyard and winery Kenefick Ranch provides a great collection of wines to gift, or enjoy, on Valentine’s Day.
2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Chris’s Cuvée ($65) With aromatics-filled flavors of raspberry and fine dark chocolate shavings, its dusty tannins are woven beautifully by notes of dark berry preserve, pairing perfectly with a chocolate mousse, or even a fruit and cheese platter.
2021 Sauvignon Blanc ($30) The bright grapefruit and tangerine zest this sauvignon Blanc gives off is met with lychee and honeydew flavor, leaving you with a crisp finish. This would complement any creamy sauce fit for a seafood dish, acting as an excellent palette cleanser.
2018 Cabernet Franc, Caitlin’s Select ($50) Graham cracker pie crust is met with a cherry finish, leaving the taste of bright red fruits with chocolate tannins on the nose. Pairs great with red meat and a slice of rich chocolate cake!
