For the Love of Blackwood Lane
Wines Truly Worthy of Valentine’s Day
The French poet, Charles Baudelaire, once wrote, “A sweetheart is a bottle of wine, a wife is a wine bottle.” The pithy statement works for husbands too! I think the reason this quote came to mind is because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s got me thinking about the romance of wine. Indeed, wine is for your sweetheart, as Baudelaire suggests! However, there is wine and then there is Blackwood Lane wine, and when it comes to that special someone in your life, I contend that they deserve the best!
Romance in a Bottle
Sure, you could buy your date (and possible future partner and love of your life) an ordinary bottle of wine, and the date may be fine – or you could bring a few bottles of Blackwood Lane and ensure that your date will be impressed!
The Amour of Alliànce
I’d suggest starting out your evening strong and beginning with a gorgeous bottle of Blackwood Lane’s signature wine, Alliànce–a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Full-bodied, complex and very juicy, with a cornucopia of flavours and aromas that make it’s a delightful sipping or food pairing wine. Fabulous!
Setting the Bar for Romance with The Referènce
The Alliànce will definitely set the mood, but if you’re looking to bring it home (and who isn’t?) then I’d highly recommend Blackwood Lane’s iconic The Referènce. To say that this wine is synonymous with romance is an understatement! Blackwood Lane owner and master winemaker, Carlos Lee, has perfected this sumptuous wine—a medium to full-bodied, rich and full on the palate, with plum, dark chocolate and oak spice flavours; Creamy mouthfeel and ripe tannins. Simply perfect!
Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, you’ll want to add Blackwood Lane’s wines to your collection. Just as we tend to show our love for others through the food we cook for them, the same goes for what wine we serve!
Hand Made in the Traditional French Fashion
Would you serve microwave dinners to your date? If you do, it’ll probably be your last! So, when you’re purchasing wine, think about that analogy. When you pour a glass of Blackwood Lane for that special person in your life, you’ll have the peace of mind that you’re serving a truly world-class wine, made by hand in the traditional French way.
An Act of Love
Come to think of it, Blackwood Lane Winery is all about love. It’s made by Carlos with love, imbibed with love, shared with love and gifted to those special people in our lives with love. It’s wine made from the heart for those who are truly lovers of world-class wine! I think that it’s safe to say that you can’t actually produce wine this good without an abiding love of the art and science of winemaking.
While Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, the love that emanates from a bottle of Blackwood Lane is a perennial experience. If you want to know what love tastes like, simply open up a bottle! I know I will!
