White

Billecart-Salmon RoseBillecart-Salmon Rose
France
$85

A classic rose and still a classic Champagne, perfect for a Valentine's Day dinner. It has all the sparkle, hint of flowers and cherries plus the earthy background for a filet mignon.?


RED

PlumpJack SyrahPlumpJack Syrah
Napa
$55

You know it by its elegant, spicy taste — one of the best syrahs in California — as voluptuous as the brand's famous cabs. You also know owner Gavin Newsom, San Francisco mayor and now lieutenant governor to Jerry Brown.


Whiskey

Palm Ridge ReservePalm Ridge Reserve
Florida (Lake County)
$40

Bourbon in style but pure Florida whiskey, and not cracker moonshine on orange squeezin's. Umatilla ranchers Marti and Dick Waters distill microbatches of Florida corn and rye into remarkably smooth and intense whiskey. Snifter-worthy.
