WINE AND CHOCOLATE? HEAVEN...
Some say the chocolate, whether a chunk, a truffle, or a souffle', shouldn't be sweeter than the wine, that there should be a sensuous tug of war, but ultimately a balance and that the darker the chocolate, the more likely you will want to pair it with red wine. A bite, a swirl of the glass, a sip. If the chocolate seems to emerge from a dark tunnel, the wine should go deep too. Don't stop to smell the roses, stop to sniff the wine.
Zinfandel, which is at times like a dessert itself, is a good choice for your sweet tooth, for chocolate. Sweet dreams. How about a Chocolate Cheese Cake with a Sparkling Rose'? Or a sliver of Chocolate Pecan Pie with a Tawny Port. Leave room for seconds. And think about this for a moment...Chocolate Souffle' with raspberries, sauce or whole, and your favorite Sauvignon Blanc or Chenin Blanc.
A bit of something luscious is necessary every once in a while. Then we will have no regrets....
just a good memory to take to Heaven!
