If you'd like a change from the traditional champagne and chocolate pairing of Valentine's Day fame, reach for a red. While ports are often a paired accompaniment, I like a bold and jammy zinfandel. Berry-laden and silky on the palate, those zins produced in a heavier style are perfect with chocolate– particularly dark. My favorite of this style, Rombauer Zinfandel, is a little tough to find, but if you've got a specialty wine store near you, call them, they are likely to carry it, or can steer you in the direction of something they carry that is similar. Locally, your best bets would be Taylors, Corti's, Beyond Napa or Capital Cellars. Another, more easy to find example, is Seghesio Zinfandel Cortina. It is at Total Wine, and has earned a 91 in WS. Seghesio has been a big award winner the last few years.
Wishing you love-filled celebrations tomorrow! xoxoSusan
