Valentine’s Day can take on a romantic, international flavor by uncorking a decadent red wine from Spain.
Known for its pairing versatility, offer your Valentine Beronia Reserva 2008 ($18.99) and the evening will glow with music and love. This dark brooding blend is an extraordinary example of classic 88 percent Tempranillo, 10 percent Garnacha and 2 percent Mazuelo aged in mixed-wood barrels of American and French oak for 12 months.
This Rioja is extremely smooth, rounded wine with integrated tannins, lively acidity and juicy, wild berry, fruit-driven flavor. On the nose, dark fruits are complimented by spicy herbal aromas, licorice, dried wood and smoke with subtle vanilla aromas on the finish.
To complete this dreamy setting pair this heady blend with spicy glazed pork ribs, herbed Brie tarts and milk chocolate hearts.
