Made from Barbera grapes from California's Madera County, Central Coast and Paso Robles, winemakers used the natural juicy fruit flavor of the Barbera grape to their advantage by storing the juice in stainless steel tanks, after leaving the juice in contact with the skins just long enough to get that spectacular blushing pink color. What is left is a crisp, medium-bodied wine that just gushes with floral red
fruit flavor with a hint of orange zest. Lively acidity sets the stage for
a dry, crisp finish that makes it perfect with any number of Valentine's

Move right into the appetizer or first course with shrimp scampi or bacon wrapped seared scallops. Chinese Chicken Salad is another old standby treat that blends perfectly with the wine.

chocolate, especially those heart shaped dark chocolate truffles.

balance Right for any preference, Day Owl Rose is a romantic pick sure to
