Wine Of The Week - Amor En Fuego

 
Only in New Mexico does pairing red chile and chocolate make as much sense as pairing peanut butter and jelly or rum and coke. While some people raise an eyebrow at the idea, they think this is something that is better suited to the making of candy, or hot chocolate, or maybe even a sauce for chicken.

Then along comes Noisy Water Winery and says, “Hey! How about making red chile and chocolate WINE???”

Amor En Fuego is literally translated as “love on fire”. And if you love red chile, chocolate, and wine, you’ll understand how this wine got its name. With hints of berries and toasted marshmallow on the nose, and a rich velvety middle of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla, finishing with a spicy red chile kick (but not too spicy!), this wine is a perfect complement to an appetizer course loaded with fruits and cheeses or as a dessert with a rich cheesecake or anything sweet and creamy like tres leches cake. Or pair it with something dark and chocolatey, like brownies.

While it makes a delicious and intriguing dessert wine on its own, it can also be used to liven up hot chocolate or coffee. Or, freeze Amor En Fuego into cubes and use it to make a deliciously boozy iced coffee! Dress it up with a dash of cinnamon or red chile powder! You can also substitute it for any liquid in brownie or cake recipes to add a subtle, extra flavor dimension.

Whether served by itself or used to enhance a favorite stand-by recipe, you’ll be sure to add a little New Mexico flavor and mystique to your glass and table by including Noisy Water’s Amor En Fuego to your selection of great wines from the Land of Enchantment!

“To love is to burn, to be on fire.”
