About chocolate wine
Chocolate wine has been around for centuries and became a popular refreshment relatively recently. This novel wine makes for a perfect end to dinner as a dessert wine or as the most elegant gift to a wine lover with a sweet tooth. A good chocolate wine has a lot of depth to its flavor profile. While a chocolate wine should have a nice chocolate flavor, it should present a lighter, fruitier taste first and have a rich chocolate finish.
Tasting notes you're likely to find with a chocolate wine are cocoa powder, dark chocolate, black cherry, strawberry, and raspberry. Some chocolate wines can remind you of chocolate cherry truffles and have a soft velvety texture. Winemakers typically use grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Tempranillo, and Merlot, known for making tasty and complex wines.
Chocolate wine is generally made with a combination of sweet red wine and dry wines; sometimes, they use a dry wine with bitter chocolate and sugar. The oldest recipe, published during the 1700s, used a Port or Sherry, with baker's chocolate, sugar, and rice flour. Many recipes use red wines, milk, eggs, and cocoa powder, and some use flour or cornstarch as a thickening agent.
