The color is deep, dark, opaque and inky, the darkest red wine I have ever made. Aromas of fresh sweet tobacco, warm toast, and jam are followed by tastes of blueberries, black tea, and dark chocolate.

Firm tannins give structure, while crushed black pepper and sugar plums round out the warm finish.

Intrigued?

"Lightly dusted with cocoa, rich flavors unfold as the truffle melts, revealing the natural complexities of the chocolate.  Take your time.  Breathe.  Let the chocolate tell its story.

Our truffles pair well with wine, coffee, tea, chai, craft beer, sake, fine liquors and liqueurs.  For a luscious combination, pair them by matching characteristics that are alike.  For an exciting combination, pair opposite characteristics. And to get the most from the experience, remember: Sip, Sip, Melt, Sip."
