Date Night Wine + ContestWords by Jennifer Stein Words by Autumn Millhouse
This just released wine is the perfect date night wine. One couple that made a pact to have a weekly date night, even after children, a major move and the transition into the wine industry is Shane and Suzanne Pavitt who dedicated their wine to date night, hence the 2006 Date Night Cabernet Sauvignon.
Date Night winemaker Ted Osborne describes the wine as "a perfectly proportioned Napa Cab, remarkable in its exquisite balance. (It’s) aromatically complex, espresso, black cherry, olive and sweet pipe tobacco, with undercurrents of chocolate truffles and ripe plum. On the palate, a sensual mix of lush fruit, milk chocolate and spice. Elegant fine grained tannins give way to spicy blackberry, espresso bean, plum and nectarine. All repeated in the long mouth-coating finish. (Enjoy from 2009 until 2018).
In celebration of this current wine release, Date Night wines are having a contest.
Share your favorite date night story and you could be one of 20 lucky winners chosen to receive two free tickets to see the new romantic comedy Date Night staring Tina Fey & Steve Carell, in a theater near you.
