  1. Zinfandel + Dark Chocolate Hershey’s Kisses: Just like the decadence of chocolate-covered strawberries, a bold-flavored Zinfandel is the perfect partner for a rich dark chocolate. Look for something medium-bodied and smooth like a bottle of 7 Deadly Zins that offers rich aromas of tart cherry, raspberry and caramel - and gets bonus points for the title pun. While regular milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses will suffice, dark chocolate will help stand up to the usually higher alcohol content of most zinfandels.
  2. Syrah + Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: Peanut butter and chocolate is already a pretty stellar combination on its own, but paired with the dark fruit flavors of a Syrah, the combo moves into a whole other level. The smooth creaminess of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is the perfect complement to the ripe berry fruit of a wine like 6th Sense Syrah - a kind of adult PB&J. Plus, the black bottle with red accents and ESP implications will have you seeing yourself buying this bottle again in the future.
  3. Pinot Noir + KitKat: Pinots often tend to be a little lighter which makes them terrifyingly good with a crispy KitKat. The milk chocolate and wafer combo is a perfect match for a light wine like a bottle of Bewitched's Pinot Noir from California's Russian River Valley.
  4. Red Blend + everything else in the bowl: When you're pretty sure you're going to be enjoying a little bit of everything from the Halloween candy bowl, play it safe by pairing your chocolate treats with a red blend like Curious Beasts Red Wine. Combining Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot, Petite Sirah, and Sangiovese, this scary bottle pairs perfectly with whatever you're noshing on from the plastic pumpkin stash.
