    This past weekend I attended a beauty products demo in my girlfriend’s home.   It was fun, relaxing afternoon, with purchases of fabulous creams we knew would make us look 15 years younger.

    After everyone had left except the four of us, we started popping open bottles of wine.  After finishing up the second bottle we decided to go for port.  Well, you can’t have port without chocolate.  Piling into my car we headed to the nearest grocery store for chocolate truffles.

    Finally locating truffles we discussed which ones to buy.  Noticing the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups I said have you ever had these with Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s fantastic!  We grabbed the chocolate truffles and peanut butter

    cups and heading back to the house.

    Once back at the house we set the port aside to open a Cabernet Sauvignon.  As my friends were skeptical, I waited nervously to hear their reaction.  They are now converts to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with wine.

    There is something about the chocolate, peanut butter and the saltiness that seems to pair well with the Cab.  We are talking about having a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup wine party and pair with other wines to see the results.
