We all do it, “borrow” Halloween candy from our children while they arent’ looking. Heck, Jimmy Kimmel has made a living out of it. I consider it my service fee for multiple trips to the store buying at least one kid a second costume because they have changed their mind on what they wanted to be; or how about a fee for all the pumpkins I gutted to create perfect little snacks for my little monsters who decided they no longer liked roasted pumpkin seeds!
After a long night of trick treating Mommy deserves not only some Halloween candy but a nice glass of wine to accompany it and we have the perfect red wine pairings for some of your favourite treats.
Their buttery Cambria Clone 4 Chardonnay with notes of baked apple is a perfect complement to the smooth, rich chocolate; our choice, Reese’s Pieces. The acidity cuts through the richness of the milk chocolate, marrying the creamy texture of the chardonnay and chocolate.
To satisfy your candy cravings, uncork a bottle of La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. It’s spiced plum, cassis and red raspberry notes compliment the sweetness and fruitiness of Skittles, Airheads or Starburst, and blend beautifully to create a sensory explosion.
For an exciting finish, pair decadent dark chocolate with vibrant Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. More red-fruited than your average pinot noir, the bouquet of aromatics and the fine-acid finish is the ideal contrast to sharp dark chocolate, creating our most complex and luxurious pairing
