Dare I say it, I think this wine is sexy. It’s spicy, it’s smoky, and with its sultry floral perfume, it reminds me of an old fashioned Hollywood starlet. Light in body but heavy in complexity and allure - this Brigitte Bardot of wine will certainly captivate your senses.
It probably goes without saying, but as new parents, Riley and I are having more “date nights in” than out these days. While Liam doesn’t sleep much in general, we can usually count on him to fall asleep around seven o’clock every night, leaving us with the rest of the evening to clear the toys, set the table, and remember what Friday night felt like before our world turned upside down.
I know that for most of us, it’s a challenge to leave the worries of the day behind when you can see the pile of laundry down the hall or hear your emails buzzing on your phone, but I guarantee that after just one glass of this irresistible wine you’ll feel worlds away from the details of your day - and if you’re lucky, ready to settle into your own romantic night in.
I think this wine does well with a slight chill, so pop it in the fridge for a few minutes before serving and consider pairing it with:
~ Pan-seared duck breast with port wine sauce
~ Bon Appetit’s date night pork chop
~ Slow roasted salmon with fennel, citrus, and chiles
~ A tapas platter with smoky eggplant spread
~ Duck carnitas tacos
