Valentine Chocolate and Wine - Jenny Dawn Cellars

Valentine Chocolate and Wine

jenny dawn cellars wine with cocoa dolce chocolates

When we think of Valentine’s day our thoughts go directly to “chocolates”. What can make this even a little sweeter? Wine and chocolate.

Invite your Valentine or Galentine to our urban winery for a special Cocoa Dolce Chocolate and Jenny Dawn Cellars wine pairing Saturday, February 13th at 3:30PM or 5:30PM.

For $20, guests get to enjoy 3 Jenny Dawn Cellars wines paired with 3 amazing chocolates from Cocoa Dolce.

The pairings are:

Cabernet Sauvignon with Raspberry Chocolate

A fan favorite, the Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby-red almost purple color. It gives off black cherry, pomegranate, currant, blackpepper, plum, blackberry; complemented by dark chocolate, black olives, dried thyme, and tobacco leaves aromas. The Cabernet is medium bodied and its taste is bold, and assertive. It has complexity and depth, purity of fruit and subtle layers of flavors and texture that harmonize. We are excited to pair this wine with the Raspberry Chocolates.

Sweet Red Wine with Red Wine Sangria Chocolate

Our Sweet Red Wine has an opaque and deep purple appearance. The aromas consist of sweet oak, espresso, black cherry, pomegranate, currant, black pepper, dried plum, and sage. This wine is medium bodied. You will taste deeply layered fruit, fine tannins, caramel, fudge, with a vanilla finish. It has a finish that is luxuriously soft and tannins that linger. This wine will compliment the Red Wine Sangria Chocolate.

Riesling with Crème Brule

The Riesling appearance is a golden yellow, it has aromas of apricot, honeysuckle, nectarine, spiced pears. It is a light -plus to medium bodied wine. Your pallet will taste apricot, honeysuckle, nectarine, spiced pear. It is the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity which will pair nicely with the Crème Brule.

Wine and chocolates have been a part of romance since the beginning of time.

History has it that St. Valentine and the mystery that follows him is one of the biggest lures and draws to this magically celebrated holiday. Secrets are both kept and revealed, forbidden love takes over our every thoughts. New words of love are spoken in an enchanting love language that only the person intended to hear it can understand.

It is believed that St. Valentine was a Roman Priest who performed secret weddings against the wishes of the authorities in the third century. When the authorities found out about this he was imprisoned. While in prison he healed his captor’s blind daughter and before his death he sent a note that simply said:

“Your Valentine”. He lost his life on February 14th.
