I bought the Tawse Cabernet Sauvingnon ice wine and it was delicious! A really nice balance of sweet, acid and juicy flavours.
My boyfriend gave me a lovely Sauternes for Christmas and I want to pair it for a Valentine's dinner. What would you suggest to cook for a main course? Dessert will be some lovely blue cheeses and dark chocolate.
Nice! Glad you liked it.
Your sweet Bordeaux can act a dessert wine, or you can pair it with appetizers. You're right on track with the blue cheese--the combo of strength is exactly what you want. Some other classic pairings are fois gras or prosciutto wrapped around asparagus.
If you reduce the wine a little in a sauce pan untill it's thick and syrupy, it can act as a nice drizzle on whatever you eat.
Thanks for asking!
