Today was Day #9 of Chocolate and Red Wine and Raspberries Theme Week. However, the choice of red wine today was an Ariel 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon that had been dealcoholized. I wanted to investigate some high-end red grape juice and low-alcohol alternatives to mix with chocolate. It's not fair to compare this Ariel wine with the very full-bodied port and late harvest Cabernet I had yesterday, but it's good to know that there's an alternative like this available.
