Try this Late Harvest Zin. With a dark chocolate, it's too good for words.

Alas, I didn't have any wine today, but I do have some homemade chocolate sauce to put on some homemade ice cream.  Maybe I'll catch up on the vino tomorrow. 

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

My chocolate loving husband stopped the TV and came and got me..."here you've got to see this" he says.


It was about how chocolate is good for you.  Laughing

That's only dark chocolate that's physically good for you. White "chocolate" is for mental health. The wine is for both. Cool

No wonder dark and white chocolate are my favorites, as well as red wine. Cool

Try it with that wine I mentioned earlier. It's a sweet desert wine made with moldy (Botrytis cinerea) grapes. This is the wine the gods on Mt. Olympus drank along with their ambrosia.

I used to work at a bar and one of our regulars was 95 and every day the retirement center that he lived at would drive him to the bar for lunch where he would have a grilled cheese sandwich, a dry martini, and a cigar...he claimed that's why he lived for so long. :-)

If only, if only, his Grilled Cheese Sandwich had been served up with a Side Order of Hot Fudge, he probably would still be alive today ...
