The Ultimate Cookie & Wine Pairing Guide

Samoas & Blandy’s 10-Years Old Bual Madeira
Girl Scout cookies are awesome. My favorite are the Samoas, those coconut and chocolate rings of deliciousness that seem to disappear by the sleeve whenever I'm in close proximity. Strange. Anyway, when it comes to pairing wine and sweets, there are plenty of dessert wines or wines with residual sugar that will work. You need a bit of sweetness in the wine or else the cookie will dominate, but I also value acidity in wine (even dessert wines) to balance out the sweetness. My go-to is Madeira, those indestructible fortified wines from the eponymous Portuguese island. They tend to have higher levels of acidity than a lot of sweet or fortified wines, so they add some vibrancy to the mix. Keep it simple, and go with a 10-Year Bual from Blandy's, which is widely available in markets across the country. The wine is rich and nutty but shows some freshness as well, and the flavors of chocolate and coconut feel right at home with this wine.
