Matchbook Old Head Chardonnay (California 2009)

I must confess, I enjoyed this Chardonnay this past summer, with the intention of sharing it with you in time for Valentine’s Day. Mostly because of the label – it’s the kind of thing that might help you start a little fire or at least hint to your lover your intentions for the night.

Golden in appearance, this smooth Chard starts with truly lovely aroma of roses, honey, and caramel, which follows through to the first sip with a touch of butter and a hint of oak on the back. It’s truly delightful, and I buy a bottle or two whenever it goes on sale.

But you should pick some up right now for a romantic meal at home. Serve it with pork loin or duck or lobster. You won’t regret it. Or the fire you start.
