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.

A Bubbly Valentine!

Okay, this year we are skipping the Merlot and Chocolate. Too many carbs! All you really need to celebrate Valentine's Day is Champagne! Why not just have appetizers with your Champagne. Perhaps some smoked salmon, prawns, oysters, whatever strikes your fancy. If you insist on a main course, how about boiled main Lobster, Lobster Thermidor, Dungeness Crab, Oysters Rockefeller, or Sauteed Prawns with Sambuca over wilted spinach. For those who don't like "surf," beef steak or roast beef is a nice treat. too.

If you really want to splurge, QFC has Bollinger Brut on sale for a mere $37. They also have the award winning Mountain Dome Brut for around $15 and the 1999 vintage bubbly for around $20. This is a rare siting of Mountain Dome. Also, in the same price range, there is Gruet's sparkler from New Mexico. Finally, there are the usual suspects from California - Chandon, Mumm's Napa Brut, and Reoderer Estate all in the $15 to $20 range.

Don't forget the red roses!
