Toasting Your Ticker

Planning a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner? How about serving some wine with real heart? Held in trust by the nonprofit Leducq Foundation, the Napa Valley–based Ehlers Estate produces certified-organic vintages like cabernet franc and merlot. One hundred percent of the proceeds from all wine sales helps fund research on cardiovascular diseases. Consider a bottle of St. Helena One Twenty Over Eighty ($45), whose name is a play on what’s typically considered the ideal blood pressure. A red with aromas and flavors of spiced plum, molasses, tea, vanilla, cream, and mocha, it’s a great way to raise a glass to your sweetie and help protect his or her sweet heart.
