The Tennessean recommends Mitolo Jester Shiraz for Valentine’s Day, tasted on the recommendation of their wine panel.   See the pdf here, and the result of the blind tasting with Jester Shiraz as follows:

2006 Mitolo “Jester” McLaren Vale, Australia, Shiraz, $24.99.

We found chocolate aromas – milk chocolate and fudge – blended with cherries, plums and cassis. Flavors included black cherries and plums, wrapped in a nice freshness. Tannins (substances in grapes that give wine character over time but can make your mouth pucker when young) were very big. The wine made the chocolate taste more candied.
