Chocolate Wine? Yes

A Product Review : ChocoVine:

Chocolate and red wine? Sounds questionable but for the sake of this food blog, I 'd experiment.

According to the wine maker," ChocoVine is a fine French Cabernet subtly combined  with a rich dark chocolate from Holland, paired together to create a decadent, silky smooth drink. It can be served on the rocks or as the main ingredient to an array of sinful cocktails."

Now, Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite wine and I adore chocolate, so why not?

WOW.  I was not expecting much but ChocoVine is a real find. Honestly.  My first sip tasted like Bailey's Irish Cream but smoother. The drink rolls on the tongue and feels like super creamy, liquid pudding. Yum, I really liked the chocolately goodness, which doesn't over power and blends nicely with delicate red wine. Smells wonderful, too.

The literature also states, " The right chocolate paired with the perfect wine can create a near-orgasmic taste experience. But the wrong wine opposite a too-sweet chocolate creates nothing but horror. Many have taken the challenge...and have failed." Well, I'm sitting at my desk by myself but feeling pretty good!

And if that isn't enough," research shows that they are both rich in antioxidant, making it a healthy combination as well. ChocoVine is gluten free."

Can't argue with that. Get yourself a bottle and try some instead of dessert.

By the way, I purchased my bottle in a Publix Grocery Store for about ten dollars, so you don't have much to lose.

I'll admit I don't think I'd pick it up from the shelf in a store, but your description makes me want to try it! I do love chocolate...

This sounds to steal your word, questionable. But I too love chocolate and cab. So I'm ordering it. It's nice to meet you - saw the post over at Wanderlust & Lipstick.

I have a friend with celiac disease and I'm always struggling to come up with goodies to bring to get-togethers that she can eat/drink also. I'm going to have to pick up a bottle! Sounds like a treat everyone will love.

That sounds weird but it would be interesting to see.
