Chocolate Lover's Wine

Pazdar Winery has a new interesting wine. Of course, saying they have an interesting wine is like saying that Govdiva makes chocolate. They specialize in unique wines.

Chocolata Amor is a rich chocolaty wine with hints of other exotic spices.

The recipe is based on an original Aztec beverage served only to the high priests and royalty.

As they write, "For those of you who are chocaholics, this is your nirvana."

A 375 ml bottle sound worth a try. I'm a little late for Valentine's Day, but it still sounds like a fun and different thing to try...maybe a good Mom's Day present.
