With the love of Valentine’s Day still lingering in the air, we can’t help but think about our most romantic wines, and there’s no time like now to treat yourself or that special someone to some incredible wine. Whether you’re planning for a belated Valentine’s Day date or surprising your best friend with a bottle of Whitehall Lane, these wines will be the perfect pair to your plans.

For the rosé lovers in your life, our 2015 Cub Red Rosé  is made of 100% Syrah and is guaranteed to impress. Pink in color, this wine is anything but boring. Our rosé is deep and full of juicy fruit flavors, like cherry, strawberry and pomegranate. Although it’s color evokes lightness and subtlety, this wine is textured and has ample weight and length on the finish, and it will surely leave your date wanting another sip. Not sure what to pair it with? We believe that your favorite cheese goes with any wine and is perfect for any occasion. Enjoy this rosé with an assortment of cheeses, fruits and charcuterie for an easy and satisfying start to your evening.

Spread the love around with a dinner party, and perfectly paired wine, of course. Invite your closest friends over to celebrate your friendship with one of our large format bottles. Available exclusively at Whitehall Lane, a magnum of our 2004 Leonardini Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect way to show your friends that you care. The weather in 2004 was ideal for this grape, and the flavors evoked are true to its terroir with notes of mocha, blackberry and cassis. After one sip, your friends will love this wine – and you! Serve with lamb chops and enjoy your friends’ company.

If that special someone loves trying something new, steal their heart with a bottle of our 2014 Sonoma Valley Zinfandel. Available from our small library of exclusive and limited-release wines, this Zinfandel is full of notes of strawberries and blackberries and a kick of black pepper. BBQ may not be the most conventional idea of a romantic dinner, but pair any BBQ or smoked dish with this wine for a meal that is sure to please your loved one.

When all’s said and done, don’t forget to treat yourself; a bottle of our 2013 Leonardini Vineyard Merlot will do the trick. 2013 is the final vintage of merlot from this vineyard, and it will cellar well through 2022, so it is the perfect wine to gift to yourself. Noted as “a merlot for cabernet lovers”, this wine is big, bold and complex – the perfect wine to treat yourself to. Enjoy this wine with roasted lamb or duck for a special meal.
Valentine’s Day may be over, but these wines give you the perfect excuse to surprise the special people in your life and show them that you care. For a complete list of Whitehall Lane wines that will sweep anyone off their feet, please take a look at our portfolio.
