Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Merlot For Valentine's Day

Okay, here's one. What wine goes with Chocolate? Port is the obvious answer. Merlot is somewhat less obvious. Champagne works, too (Mumm's Napa Brut and Chandon are on sale at local supermarkets). But a luscious Merlot is the perfect romantic companion to chocolate. Some Merlots are more chocolate friendly than others. Try Columbia Crest Reserve Merlot! It's a splurge at $30, but she's worth it , isn't she?
