Chocolate Shop Chocolate Red Wine
Friday, January 18, 2013
Sweeting the tongue for centuries, chocolate and red wine has been the most reliable pairing in history. Washington’s Chocolate Shop takes this pairing to the next level, marrying chocolate flavor with red wine to create a sumptuous drink.
“We start with a proprietary red blend of the finest vinifera varietals (mostly Merlot), add a touch of oak and a kiss of sweetness to create the perfect fruit-driven foil for the rich dark chocolate, which unfolds in silken layers across the palate.”
Owen Dugan, Wine Spectator: “The nose carries the cherry motif, with a little kirsch. The first time you taste it you will smile a little as the surprise of chocolate unfurls.”
