The Ultimate Cookie & Wine Pairing Guide

Chocolate Chocolate Chip & Trentadue Chocolate Amore NV
I'm usually more of a milk and cookies kind of gal because cookies and other desserts can be challenging to pair with wine. Many wines are drier and more acidic than sweets and when this occurs, the wines will taste bitter. Have you ever eaten something sweet, then had orange juice after? If so, you understand what I mean. Therefore, it's important to select cookie and wine pairings carefully, so I've done a little experimenting for you. My favorite cookie is one made of chocolate. Even better is chocolate with chocolate chips. With this cookie, I selected the Trentadue Chocolate Amore NV ($20), which is a port-style wine. What that means is that during fermentation, the conversion of sugar to alcohol, neutral spirits are added to stop this process and retain sugar in the wine. Chocolate Amore is crafted from Trentadue's Geyserville Ranch, Alexander Valley merlot, then chocolate essence is added prior to bottling. The result is an award-winning dessert wine that is reminiscent of chocolate-covered cherries or Black Forest cake in a glass, thus making this wine an ideal pairing with chocolate cookies or chocolate anything. You can even skip the cookies and enjoy it alone as a digestif. Bon appétit!
