Ultimate Halloween Guide Pairs Candy With the Perfect Wine
When you steal Halloween candy from your kids' trick-or-treat bag, it's really hard to know what wine best complements your selection. Until now.
Vivino, a popular wine app, has come out with its 2016 Ultimate Guide to Pairing Wine with Halloween Candy.
A couple of my favorites:
Reese's Penut Butter Cups & Sherry
Reach for a bottle of Oloroso Sherry to toast the now-probably-sainted person who first married chocolate and peanut butter. Toasted nuts, caramel, raisins, and brown sugar, accented by salt, blend harmoniously with the rich flavor of a Reese’s. Try it: NV Bodegas Grant ‘La Garrocha’ Oloroso or Gonzalez-Byass Cristina Oloroso Abocado
Hershey Kisses & Zinfandel
The best wine contrasts creamy milk chocolate with ripe berry flavors. America’s sweetheart, Zinfandel, turns every bite into a raspberry cordial on the palate. Try it: 2014 Ridge Paso Robles Zinfandel
