Ken’s Wine Guide Recommends Wines For Valentine’s Day Dinner

Oysters – A known aphrodisiac and ideal for setting the mood. Ken recommends a tangy and acidic wine like Kim Crawford’s 2006 Sauvignon Blanc, $17.

Halibut or Tilapia – These mild fish call for a light Italian white wine. Ken suggests the 2005 Argiolas "Costamolino," $15. It is a dry Vermentino from Sardinia.

Salmon with Herb Butter – This dish calls for a Pinot Noir or a Chardonnay. Ken recommends the 2003 Robert Stemmler "Carneros Estate" Pinot Noir, $36, or the 2004 Kendall Jackson "Camelot Highlands" Chardonnay, $28.

Chicken Marsala – Consider a Beaujolais from George Duboeuf. His 2005 Château de Nervers, $13, from Brouilly would be a great match.

Lamb Chops – Ken likes the 2004 Terrazas de los Andes "Reserva" Malbec, $16. This wine will go nicely with the mint jelly and the lamb chops.

Pan Seared T-Bone Steak – Grilled steak calls for a Syrah. Ken recommends the 2003 E. Guigal "Crozes-Hermitage," $22.

Chocolate Mousse or Truffles – Try a couple of sweet wines. For a white dessert wine, Ken recommends the 2003 Macari "Block E" from Long Island, $36. With chocolate, Ken’s favorite is the 2003 Dry Creek "Late Harvest" Zinfandel, $30. If you prefer champagne or sparkling wine with your chocolate, try Charles Heisieck "Brut-Reserve," $38, or Roederer Estate Non Vintage "Brut Rosé", $26.
