Wine Pairing: Wine and the 5 Love Languages
Valentine’s Day is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than by acknowledging your special someone’s love language. I recently took the quiz and found out that my love language is wine. But then I was told that wine is not one of the 5 love languages, so I have no idea what quiz I took. Maybe it was the Myers-Briggs? Anyway, why not pair your love language with wine!
01. Words of Affirmation
“I love you, and you will love this wine.”
For this love language, you need a wine that has a lot to say. I suggest the 2019 Viognier. It has aromas and flavors that linger and whisper softly, “You are perfect. Go ahead, take another sip.” It’s smooth and full-bodied with an ever-changing finish that expresses itself with minerality and crisp citrus.
02. Quality Time
“Let’s spend some time together drinking this bottle of wine.”
Quality time is all about giving your full attention to the person you are with. Why not spend some of that quality time sharing a bottle of 2019 Sweet Riesling? Just the right amount of fun and relaxing, sweet but not too sweet. Complex enough to keep the conversation going, but not so overwhelming that you get distracted and forget that this is about your loved one and not the wine.
03. Acts of Service
“I opened this bottle of wine and poured it into your favorite glass.”
What wine not only loves you but shows you it loves you? Which wine is willing to do the work for you, to show you just how much it cares? That wine is the 2019 Merlot. You can always count on Merlot; it is a staple of the wine world and willing to do the extra work, so you don’t have to. 2019 is fruity and soft on the finish with just the right amount of cherry and vanilla flavors.
04. Physical Touch
“I may have a bottle of wine in one hand and glass in the other, but I can still give you a hug.”
Who needs physical touch from a loved one when you can let Shiraz Reserve give all your taste buds an embrace of flavor? Shiraz Reserve is not just an embrace for your tongue, it is a whole mouth experience. With perfectly balanced acid and tannins, this full-bodied wine caresses the pallet with a flavor that is so complex it shifts with every sip.
05. Receiving Gifts
“I got you a bottle of wine while I was running errands.”
Just a little something to show you care. Any bottle of Lost Oak wine speaks to this love language. Just the act of ordering online for delivery, curbside pickup, or stopping by and letting one of our friendly staff help pick something out is perfect for this love language.
Whatever the love language of you and your loved one, we have a wine we can pair it with. Cheers!
