What a name, huh? Trust me. It tastes as good as it sounds.
My husband and I went to a tasting at our local UnWined in Belle View Shopping Center a few weeks ago. Billed as a “Derecho” party because of the dire forecast that luckily wasn’t accurate, we met winemaker Bo Silliman from SLOdownWines.
At first glance, Bo is complete California Surfer Dude. The long blonde hair, the winning smile, the casual attitude. The boy (yes, I’m old enough to call him that) makes a mean red wine.
Sexual Chocolate is a unique blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Lush, warm and heavy with black fruit, it certainly made my taste buds sway with bliss. Paired with a phenomenal “Macellaio” pizza (Paradiso tomato, pepperoni, mozzarella, sausage, red onion) from Pizza Paradiso in Old Town, the wine delightfully intensified and complemented the pizza’s earthiness.
Sexual Chocolate runs $24.99 a bottle.
