And suddenly it’s February. Wherever you are in B.C., spring still seems a long time away. But, this month we have the Family Day long weekend, and Cupid’s very own holiday, Valentine’s Day. We will begin in our own backyard with a bright and juicy Cabernet Franc from the Black Sage Bench. It’s a collaboration between Okanagan Crush Pad and Sally Campa from Vino Volo - the wine lounge that gives us a reason to live when we are at the airport! I’ve included a pair of duelling Malbec wines to showcase this plummy grape’s ability to transmit soils and climate brilliantly. I hope you’ll open them side-by-side with a nice grilled skirt steak (and maybe some chimichurri sauce for dunking) to appreciate the voice of Cahors versus Mendoza. Antica Vigna’s Appassionato would be a fitting bottle for St. Valentine’s Day: its plump, plush fruit will seduce your tastebuds, and perhaps someone else’s! Plus, one of the owners of Appassionato is named Eros! True story. Also from Italy, but this time from Brindisi in the deep south, comes Susumaniello, a little-known red grape that tastes a bit like Sangiovese with softer tannins. Bet you’ve never tried one! My go-to weekday wines are often from the Rhône Valley, and Domaine Paul Autard Côtes-du-Rhône is a firm favourite. Earthy, stony, chewy, silky, it’s about as old school Rhône as it gets. We’ve got this short month covered with excellent wines!
