          Description

          Our tasters tried several wines before settling on this full-bodied California Zinfandel as the perfect pairing for Godiva's rich, dark chocolates. Deep in fruit and consistently rated a 90+ point wine, this Zinfandel enhances the luscious fillings – dark caramel, midnight swirl, raspberry ganache – of these assorted chocolates. Simply put, it's a match made in wine and chocolate heaven.

          Each gift set contains:

          • Ridge California Geyserville (750 ml)
          • Godiva 27 pc Dark Chocolate Gift Box

          Wine gift sets & baskets may be packaged with the bottles separately boxed for their protection during shipment

          Pursuant to state laws in New York, gifts that contain both food and wine will be sent in two separate packages.

          Bordeaux Blends

          View all wine

          One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

          In the Glass

          Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

          Perfect Pairings

          Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

          Sommelier Secret

          While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
