A Gift for a Sweetheart: Chocolate, Wine and Thou ...

Pour on the chocolate for Valentine's Day. This sauce from Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga, Calif., is made with Maximus, a cabernet sauvignon-merlot-syrah blend. It works over cake, profiteroles, berries or ice cream, and it can go into a chocolate soufflé. The sweetening in the sauce, which offers winy flavors, is restrained. It is $18 for 375 milliliters from bennettlane.com. Packaged with a bottle of the bold, fruity 2005 Maximus, it's $50.
