Since February is the month of love, I wanted this pairing to exemplify the romance in Fallen Kingdom. Kam and Kiaran have a strong, deep, true love. It has slowly build throughout the novels coming to a crux in this one. It is passionate, sweet, and powerful. They have strong personalities in their own respect as well, never losing their individuality to the relationship. The wine I chose, Anne de K Gewurztraminer Vogelgarten Vieilles Vignes, has a very fruity and floral nose which represents the sweet aspects of the relationship. The spice that can also be detected on the nose portrays the passion that is in the relationship and intermingles with amiable characteristics of the relationship. The wine itself is powerful but refined. Both Kam and Kiaran are powerful individuals, but together they are a power couple. The freshness on the palate foreshadows new beginnings, just the novel's ending. Over-all, this wine can heighten the experience of reading Fallen Kingdom by having mirroring notes to the relationship aspect of the novel.
