T he Vineyard is had a Valentine’s Tasting, matching wines with sweet treats. A yearly thing that Roger does. But this year he had something special, Deidra and Vera of Sweet Jones brought their fantastic sweets and Roger matched them up with the tasting wines. The red velvet mini-cakes were to die for. (I came back on Saturday and bought 3). Great little tasting.

Pearly Bay Sparkling | South Africa
An easy drinking wine with an abundance of tropical fruit flavors. The wine is well balanced and has a crisp clean finish.–From their WebsiteCost: $9.99
Worthy Sauvignon Blanc | California
Website Cost: $19.99
Sexual Chocolate Red Blend | California
It’s hard not to be aroused by the sensual trio of Syrah, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. The burst of intense fruit, dark chocolate and spice will do things to your palate you’ve only read about on sites that require credit cards. It starts off all innocent with a triple kiss of plum, cherry and cola, but then things escalate quickly as a daring duo of mocha and blackberry take your taste buds on a smooth ride they’ll be journaling about for months. (Varietal: Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah). Website Cost: $24.99
Calipaso V Zinfandel | California
This is the king of red wines, with an unequaled ability to age. Ample fruitiness of black currants and cherries combined with firm tannins result in a classic structure with a savory, elegant finish. As the wine opens in the glass, Cabernet’s famed layers of flavor come to the forefront, presenting a parade of aromas and flavors starting with deep fruits, proceeding through stones and leather, and finishing with alluring hints of summer herbs and subtle floral scents. Website Cost: $14.99
Ehlers Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa, California
This is a full-bodied, heavyweight Cabernet Sauvignon from the loamy benchland soils of our estate vineyard. The wine is layered with blackberry, black raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate, and sports a great structure and backbone. Focused acid, silky soft tannins, and a touch of spice emerge from the mid-palate. Compelling and complex, this is a fine Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend that will age for decades. Website Cost: $59.99
Sandeman Ruby Porto | Portugal
Brilliant red ruby in colour, with clean aromas of red fruits, plums and strawberries, Sandeman Porto Ruby has full rich flavours and is very well balanced. Rich, round, balanced in the mouth, with overt flavours of fresh plums and red fruits.–From their Website Cost: $15.99
