Sexual Chocolate 2010 Review

Wine of the Day: 2010 Sexual Chocolate

OK, we know what you're thinking — a wine called "Sexual Chocolate"?! Crazy as it sounds, this blend by SLO Down Wines deserves the name. Once the Zinfandel-Syrah opens, the luscious dark chocolate-covered cherry scent will make you groan with pleasure. The flavor is rich and raisin-y sweet on the palate but has a zingy, black pepper finish. This is no wimpy, amateur wine; the company prides itself on casual, Cali culture, and it's enjoyed by connoisseurs and college kids alike.

2010 Sexual Chocolate is going for $22 a bottle, and if the name alone hasn't caught your interest, then the marketing sure will. The boys at SLO Down Wines are goofy, young entrepreneurs, new to the wine industry, and their business model reflects their silly spirit. The back of the wine label looks handwritten in no. 2 pencil and claims this wine is a "full-body red that pairs well with Wednesday nights and pizza." But we're more willing to reserve this wine for something a little more special than pizza with friends. It seems like just the thing to uncork on the beach, barefoot with a honey.
