Wine Pairings

A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State or California works best here, but don’t forget to try a rich, spicy Zinfandel from California too. The strong tannic Abinao and these strong tannic wines become a creamy rich pairing where the cocoa becomes prominent. Currant and white pepper spice really show through, too.

Beer Pairings

This strong, robust chocolate has deeply earthen, unadulterated flavors of burnt coffee, intense bitterness and a chewy, thick texture. To complement this aggressiveness, an Imperial Stout is just as powerful and dark as the chocolate, along with an elevated alcohol level to maintain everything about this pairing as over indulgent. To soften the heartiness of this chocolate, the nourishing, sweet creaminess of a traditional British Milk Stout that contains lactose will soothe this chocolate and pair well with its thick, almost pasty texture by softening the finish.
