Washington- Entwines the aromas and flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and plum with touches of rich dark chocolate. The combination of ruby red wine with a natural chocolate core is like a liquid chocolate truffle in a bottle. It is the best of both worlds - enjoy yourself.
Washington wine country has only been producing premium wines for some 50 years, no time at all compared to many of the world’s winemaking regions. Yet in that half-century, Washington has become the United States’ second-largest wine producer, behind California. And each year, Washington winemakers deliver an ever-more-impressive portfolio of world-class wines.
It’s not easy. Washington state wineries face serious obstacles, most notably the region’s climatic extremes.
Sorry, no such thing as a chocolate grape! But with a winemaker’s skillful blending, chocolate wines do manage to combine two of our favorite things – red wine and chocolate – in a single pour.
Chocolate wines are made by adding chocolate flavors to a base of red wine. Cream or fruit flavoring may also be added. Chocolate wines are sweet wines to pair with dessert, or enjoy on their own, nicely chilled.
