Valentine's Day is Just Around the Corner

Oakton Wine Shop Recommendations for Valentine's Day

Where has the year gone?  It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Valentine's Day and here it is 9 days away.  Well never fear here at Oakton Wine Shop we have several ideas to help you out.  While roses and a card always are good things to get for the Special Person in your life, why not be a little different and get them a bottle of wine to share with you on this day of love!  Here are several suggestions from us here for you to celebrate:

Sparkling/Champagne - Everyone likes to have a glass of bubbly and it is not just for weddings and New Year's Eve.  On Valentine's Day why not pick up a bottle of Sparkling Malbec, Sparkling Rose or a bottle of Classic Champagne.  Here are a few recommendations:

  • Terra Sparkling Malbec - From Argentinia this sparkler is light red in color with a nice dose of fruit.  $19.99 Sale Price $17.59
  • Mirabelle Brut Rose - Classic California Sparkler with strawberry cream notes with a dry finish perfect to pair with chocolate covered strawberries. $29.99
  • Boizel Brut - Nothing says wow like a true French Champagne, and with this bottle from Boizel your taste buds will say Wow and Thank you! $41.99

White Wines - oh so many bottles to choose yet so little time.  White wines are always a great way to start the evening off before heading out (with a cab or designated driver of course)  Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Anton Bauer Rosenberg Gruner Veltliner - Crisp with tropical fruit notes pairs well with goat cheese and fresh fruit.  $19.99
  • Jermann Chardonnay - Everyone loves a good Chardonnay and Italian wine and when you combine it together from one of the top Chardonnay producers you have a great match.  $26.99
  • En Numeros Vermells... Garnacha Blanc - From one of our favorite Spanish producers this wine shows nice notes of hazelnut, leche, white apricot and a creamy finish.  $49.99

Red Wine -  Red Red Wine makes everything so fine.   Red wine goes with everything except white carpets.  Here are some of favorites and a special treat:

  • Joseph Puig Red - made from Garnataxa and Carignan this rich red pairs with everything from hamburgers to an elegnat steak dinner.  Ripe dark red fruits, nice acidity and well integrated tannins.  $21.99
  • Conn Creek Cabernet - Nothing says love like Chocolate and Napa Valley Cabernet.  Beautiful dark fruit, tobacco, leather and chocolate flavors casacde over the palate.  $22.99
  • Opus One - Will make anyone a true lover of fine wine.  A joint venture with Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe Rothschild, this wine is a true star and sure to make the loved one in your life very happy.  $259.99 on Sale $199.59

If these wines sound interesting come on by the shop and pick up a bottle or two.  If not we will find you a bottle to make the day even more special.  We have tastings on Friday and Saturday this week and Thursday, Friday and Saturday next week.  See you at the shop!

Attempted to post a comment here earlier and hope this isn't a duplicate: This wine shop is sending me mixed messages. The use of Patch for free advertising is very smartly done and wins a tip of my hat. I mean that as a compliment, seriously. On the other hand, the prominent sign about solicitation on the storefront is about as user-unfriendly as you can get. I won't set foot in the premises so long as that sign is there.
