I have a weakness for dark chocolate blended with wine and/or liquor. And, while I liked both of these Coco Delice chocolates very much, I especially liked the Spicy Rouge (pictured above, left) -- a well-balanced blend of dark chocolate ganache, Italian red sparkling wine, and cayenne pepper.
There are an increasing number of opportunities in Northern California to sample dark chocolate and red wine, together, in pairings, or flights. So, I'm challenging myself to find enough of these combinations to last for several days. Today is Day #1 of Chocolate and Red Wine Theme Week.
