I tried a new wine yesterday, Chocolate Shop. They call it the chocolate lover’s wine, red wine with natural dark chocolate flavor. They’re right.
When I pour a glass of new wine, the first thing I do is smell it. I can usually get an idea of the taste by the smell. This wine smelled decadent. It smelled like dark chocolate, with just a hint of alcohol.
But it was also strange to see red wine in my glass. I usually drink white wine, as red wine is too dry for my taste.
It’s a dessert wine, very much on the sweet side. The first flavor that hits your tongue is the dark chocolate, with a slight wine after taste. It’s quite nice, but as it’s a dessert wine, you can’t drink more than about a half glass. That’s okay with me, because I rarely drink more than that anyway.
We tried two other wines last night also, both by a company called Oliver. The first was a honey mead and the other was a honey black cherry wine. They both tasted horrible. It was the first time we’ve ever just dumped two bottles of wine down the sink drain.
I think we made out well, with one out of three. Maybe next time we’ll hit two out of three.
