Well, we have a decision – and it’s unanimous.
ChocoVine is delicious!
The problem is– the problem when it comes to blogging about it, at least– is that I can’t quite describe what it tastes like. It wasn’t what I expected… I thought it would taste like chocolate-flavored red wine, and I was expecting to think it was gross– so to prepare for the blog, I began thinking of comparisons to make about how some foods go well together but shouldn’t be infused together. You know, chocolate and wine pair nicely, but they shouldn’t necessarily be mixed. All I could think of was chocolate and strawberries… oh wait, no… beer and fish … hm, still no… So I didn’t get very far.
But the wine doesn’t stand out at all. Perhaps if I my pallet was a bit more refined, I would have tasted it, because the website boasts that it’s a fine French Cabernet… but I didn’t taste it. You just taste the chocolate.
I do feel as though I’ve tasted it before — like that face you see in a crowd that you can’t quite place, but you know you’ve met. I suppose it resembles Kahlua a bit, although it’s thinner.
Anyway, it’s yummy. I hope it doesn’t mean I fall into the same class as blue Boones Farm lovers.
And yes, Jessica…
