But what are the signs of a good chocolate? How do you taste chocolate?
Many are similiar to a good wine!
Take a look at your chocolate. It should look smooth and even. Blemishes, bubbles, or uneven coloring should not be visible!
A gentle touch should get the chocolate to warm and that's when you breathe in the aroma! It should be richly chocolately! It should not smell of vanilla, coffee, fruit or sugar.
When you put the chocolate in your mouth, it should start to melt right away. Good chocolate will have a very smooth creamy feel loaded with chocolate flavors and it will not have texture, an oily, or waxy feel or taste
Let the chocolate linger in your mouth and enjoy every last bit of the flavor!!
Make sure to wash it down with a delicious red wine from 612 Vineyard such as our Port Style Sultry and Red Dessert Wine!
