NC HolidayWine Project – #3

                                                    RASPBERRY TRUFFLE IN A GLASS  

  Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. 

With Laurel Gray Vineyards “Carolina Christmas” wine, you don’t need a pairing.  This is the perfect treat to take to that festive Holiday party you have been invited to or the perfect dessert to share with family and friends in your home.

Here I have used smaller port style glasses that were chilled in the freezer for a few hours then rimmed with Laurel Gray’s Chocolate Wine Sauce (a rich Dutch chocolate made with Laurel Gray’s Cabernet Sauvignon wine) and filled with this luscious black raspberry infused red blend.  It is such a Holiday favorite for loyal Laurel Gray customers that they prepare a special Holiday gift box that pairs the wine and chocolate sauce for gift-giving and they always sell out.  It truly is like having a raspberry truffle!

Both the wine and the Chocolate Wine Sauce are available year round.  The wine is also known as “Encore” but is dressed with a special Christmas label for the Holidays.  The label will change each year, but you will always find Kim’s signature snowman perched cheerfully somewhere  in the Holiday scene depicted.

Varietal: Red blend infused with black raspberry;  Alcohol: 12.5%;  Price: $17.00 (wine) and $18.95 (chocolate sauce)
