October 19, 2011
These wines are specially designed to pair with the final course, namely everyone's favorite — dessert.
Warre's Warrior Port (Portugal): These used to be called "Vintage Character" Ports and are now referred to as "Special Reserve". Warres is the oldest brand of Port in the world, and this wine pairs beautifully with chocolate and strong cheeses. 750 ml. $13.99, Save $5
Croft Ruby and Tawny Port (Portugal): These may be basic Ruby and Tawny Ports, but they deliver for the money. 750 ml. $9.99, Save $2
Chocolate Shop Dark Chococolate Wine (Washington): There has been a proliferation of chocolate-infused wines lately. We have tried many of them, and this one hit the mark. You can still taste the wine, and the chocolate is perfectly integrated. If you like red wine and dark chocolate, you will love this wine. 750 ml. $9.99, Save $2
