Weekend Wine and Food Pairing- Petite Sirah and Dark Chocolate

I have mentioned pairing dark chocolate and Petite Sirah before and it still remains one of my all time favorites.  As much a people like to think that red wine and chocolate naturally go together, it can sometimes be difficult to find a great match.  I first tried Petite Sirah with dark chocolate a couple of years ago and was amazed at how harmonious the flavors of the wine and chocolate were together.  A perfect dessert combination.

One Petite Sirah I recommend pairing with dark chocolate is 2009 Rock Wall Gamble Ranch Petite Sirah.  This wine is loaded with rich tastes of plum, dark chocolate, and dark cherries.  The chocolate flavors linger in the finish.  A mouth-watering combination! ($30)
