Cooper Vineyards Noche

Wine: Cooper Vineyards Noche Virginia Sweet Table Wine
Store: Gift, but I've seen it at Total Wine
Price: $16.00

OK, so I have no bottle information, no information on the website to quote for this wine. A friend was at a local wine festival and tasted this wine there. He thought I'd love it, so he brought it home to me. It's very much a port-type wine, and it is said to have a chocolate taste. I definitely agree with that. I'm not much into heavy, dessert wines, though. It smells like chocolate, and the taste is definitely there. There also seems to be some raspberry undertones to the wine. Not my favorite, though. It's good for what it is, but I probably wouldn't buy it for myself. Make sure to enjoy it with some dessert, though. I'm enjoying it with some peanut butter cookies with hershey kisses. Not the classiest dessert ever, but I'm happy. Ooooh, I bet it would be really good with some cheesecake. Hmmmmmm....

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Given what has been posted by WINENOVICE, maybe a little more research would help out. The wine does have chocolate and raspberries that tantalize your taste buds. The wine was sampled/complimented with Hershey's kisses by the vendor at the wine festival I attended. This wine has won several top awards. The mediocre rating does not do this win justice. The high awards better represent it. For more info, visit
