A Passionate wine for your Valentine

With the big day tomorrow, I wanted to share with you a fabulous wine that is perfect for Valentines Day. I served this wine at our women’s wine club last week and it was a huge hit. It is a traditional grape varietal from Spain called the Bobal. If you are a Pinot Noir fan, or like something even fuller, this is a great one to try. Upon opening the bottle, it is very “tight”. Meaning it needs a little air before it is ready to enjoy. But when it opens up after about 25 minutes, it  has a rich spicy quality, with smooth berry and a touch of chocolate. Wonderful to serve with a spicy tomato sauce, grilled meats, or even go casual and order a pepperoni pizza with this one! Even my “California Cabernet only” drinking husband, Il Divo, really liked this one.  We enjoyed it with spicy steamed mussels and pasta.

The bottle itself, Pasion de Bobal, evokes a touch of romance with hearts adorning a tree on the label. Not only is it a beautiful bottle and a wonderful tasting wine, it is also from an organic farm. Nice to enjoy a terrific wine and know that the extra care and dedication of organic farming is in the bottle. The Pasion de Bobal has a fantastic price tag too, about 14.99.

Love this wine! I’m going to make this “Passion” something we enjoy often at my house…
