Wine and Chocolate Pairings!

IMG_2711Wine pairs beautifully with chocolate! One of my favorite ways to enjoy a Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, or Port Wine is with some truffles or a big chunk of dark chocolate. Wine and chocolate can be a very sensual experience and while the weather continues to get colder, it’s nice to “pair up” with someone special and enjoy a deliciously sweet pairing.

Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. Drops of Jupiter is a delicious red blend with notes of luscious berries and violets. On the palate, this wine is bold with balanced tannins with those juicy berry and floral notes following through. When pairing a wine such as this with chocolate, Ghiradelli makes some great ones to pair. This label is special to Save Me, San Francisco Wine, and the Dark Cabernet Chocolate is one that brings out those purple driven violet notes that are absolutely delicious as a pairing.

Keep an eye out for more chocolate and wine pairings this holiday season! Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love… please pair responsibly.
