WineO Mark Review

For a Chocolate wine, this is probably my favorite. This wine has a rich red fruit aroma filled with raspberries, cranberries, and red cherries with notes of chocolate. 

On the palate, it’s full-bodied, has a complex syrupy texture, and has a balanced sweetness. It’s bold, thick, lovely, and refreshing with flavors of dark raspberries, cherries, and strawberries with hints of caramel, vanilla, honey, and chocolate. But the real joy of this drink is the moment when the wine’s initial tartness and acidity subsides to reveal a decadent rich, dark chocolate, adding a nice layer to this drink.

Finally, it carries a velvety smoothness that is both satisfying and luxurious, perfectly reflecting its name.

Overall, it’s an interesting and rewarding experience for those with a taste for the unique. And I’d say definitely worth a try, knowing this is a different type of wine, a Chocolate wine.
