Chocolate Shop

Chocolate and wine – a combination I didn’t believe could be delicious until my chef friend invited me to a chocolate and wine pairing party – and it was incredible! So, this Merlot-lover thought she would give it a try. There’s no denying it, it’s sweet! For the first sip, it may be all you […]

Pelee Island 2011 Shiraz Wine Review

Pelee Island Shiraz – 2011 The first sip began with the fruity taste of sweet plum with a surprisingly mischievous, peppery kick and a dangerously comfortable finish. We enjoyed this Shiraz with a homemade, wonderfully garlicy roast, potatoes and roasted vegetables. Pair it with: A Flapper Murder at the 1920’s Speakeasy. This little Shiraz is […]

Misterio Malbec Wine Review

Misterio Malbec – 2010 Mendoza, Argentina The first sip is a tangy shock, but it finishes nicely with fruity essences and a smoky aftertaste. Like any good mystery, this wine delivers a multi-layered sip, and lingers long after the final swallow. Pair it with: The multi-tiered plot of The Masquerade Murder, where the suspects are […]
