The David Show dropped off a couple of samples to try… I am not one for getting all worked up over trends, but here’s two chocolate-flavored wines from the folks at Gallo (complete with their own scratch ‘n sniff point of sale!):
Tisdale Chocolate Red Wine California NV. Grade=Average. Remember Augustus Gloop from Willy Wonka? Imagine now if Fred Franzia had backed his truck full of bulk red wine up into the side of the Wonka factory and all that grape juice spilled out into the chocolate river, just as poor ol’ Augustus was slurping it up. Something for the inebriated ten-year old chocoholic in us all.
Liberty Creek Chocolate Red Wine California NV. Grade=Average. This is sort of like reducing a Frisch’s® Hot Fudge cake into a smoothie, adding some Two-Buck-Chuck red, and Viola! All you need now is some whipped cream and a cherry on top. I really should have my dentist’s phone number on speed dial right about now.
