It is Girl Scout cookie season and that makes me want to pair them with wine every time. Last year I paired them with our Malbec and Chambourcin, well this year I will pair them with our new dessert style wines. I know tough job, but someone has to do it :)
First up is our house favorite, Samoa...with its rich chocolate and caramel taste pairs wonderfully with our USB (port-style) wine.
Second would be the Tag-A-Longs...milk chocolate with a peanut butter center goes great with our new BlackJack wine, Chambourcin fermented with blackberries.
Third is the original Thin Min...although it has a hint of mint, the dark chocolate icing and cookie pair very well with our RAZ wine, Merlot fermented with raspberries.
Our last dessert style wine (but not least) is our Cello, Petit Manseng infused with lemon zest, goes great with the butter cookie, Trefoil or their new lemon cookie, Savannah Smiles.
