Valentine's Day Wine Ideas
Have you heard about Mark Oldman? I hadn't, until Yummy Hubby brought Mr. Oldman's new book home and we started watching his hilarious videos on You Tube. He has a very entertaining way of teaching about wine, so here I'll share with you his Valentine's Day picks. I would love to know if you have tried or are going to try any of these wines. Conundrum sounds right up my alley.
Here's that new book I was referring to-"An excellent primer…the perfect book for someone who’s just caught the bug, or would like to...informative and entertaining. Oldman knows his stuff, but he also enlists an army of chefs, winemakers, sommeliers and celebrities to help him demystify the subject...Oldman’s breezy, literate prose and his facility with pop culture metaphors makes for easy reading. Among a number of memorable phrases here, I particularly liked his description of Priorat—the powerful, minerally red from Spain—as ‘Unslim Slatey.’"
