A week of Valentine’s Day treats-Day 3
“Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss within the cup
And I’ll not ask for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise
Doth ask a drink divine;
But might I of Jove’s nectar sup,
I would not change for thine.”
Bonny Doon’s Framboise Fleur-Book of Love
Raspberries, raspberries and more raspberries. Framboise Fleur is actually made from three different kinds of raspberries!
This would be a perfect dessert wine to pair with cheesecake, or a rich, dense flourless chocolate torte.
Francis Ford Coppola’s Sofia Blanc de Blancs
A fruity, fresh blend of pinot blanc, sauvignon blanc and muscat.
Crisp flavors of tart apples, pears, citrus and honeysuckle.
A wonderful dessert wine to pair with orange spongecake, lemon meringue pie, creme caramel, or vanilla flan.
