WINE AND CHOCOLATE-YUM!

I, big time chocolate lover, actually felt over served the other night at a wine and chocolate tasting.  It wasn’t the wine but the chocolate that got to me.  I believe now that it is because the chocolate was such good quality, of which I get little, so my system shut down.  Of course, my friend asked “compared to what?” and I had to reply M&M’s.  I thought I would pass along the pairings so that you, too, could experience the comparison.

Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips (don’t laugh)/Domaine Ste. Michelle Blanc de Noirs

Helen Graham Truffle (my favorite)/Mionetto Prosecco Brut

Raspberry Truffle/Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon

Milk chocolate Wild Cherry/377 Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark Fleur De Sel Caramel Square/Rosemount Shiraz

Cinnamon Espresso Truffle/Brazin Old Vine Sinfandel (my favorite)

Dark English Toffee (second favorite) / Sandeman Founders Reserve Port

All of the wines were quite reasonable, the highest being the Beringer Cab at $21 a bottle.  I think the chocolates will run you more than the wine.  Chocolates by Graham’s, by the way.
