The Tasting Experience

Breathe
Close your eyes and take three deep breaths in and out through the nose, to the count of 4 on the inhale and a 4 on the exhale. Notice how the breath flows in your nose cool and then warm as it flows out in the exhale.

Read
Read the story of the chocolate you are about to taste. This allows you to pair 
a picture in your imagination to conjure a vision of taste and journey.

See
See the chocolate. See the wine. Observe it as if for the first time… Examine the curves, the color, the movement; have a sense of its weight and temperature.

Touch
Touch the chocolate. Notice the shine on the surface and topping, if one exists. While reading its description and seeing its appearance, how does the chocolate feel in your hand? How do you think it will taste?

Smell
Close your eyes again, smell the chocolate. What aromas arise?

Taste
Slowly place the chocolate against your lips, feeling it. Now bite the chocolate in half and notice the sound it makes as it breaks. Taste both the wine and the chocolate on their own first. Now, taste the chocolate and wine together.

Finish
Reflect on the finish in your mouth by sipping air through your nose and chewing on it in the mouth.

"I encountered a state of bliss once again, years later, when drinking a red wine alongside a dark chocolate Red Fire truffle (Ancho chilies + Royal Vietnamese cinnamon + 62% cacao dark chocolate). Gasp! Could it be that chocolate had finally broken away from its  traditional dessert wine couplings? As I sipped, the evidence danced on my palate: the ripe cherry, plum and raspberry notes in the wine brought out the innate fruit qualities in our proprietary chocolate. The heat of the chili pepper slowly warmed my throat in a way it never had before. Yet all the while, the wine and spirits remained powerful and beautiful on its own.”

- Katrina
