Coffee flavored wine - it's about time!

Combining two of my favorite liquids. I score it 100 points!

More than a few red wines have coffee/mocha aromas from oak toast. I high WS or Parker score increases the chance you will find this quality.

What Berry said. Especially cultish Cabs.

This reminds me of one of my greatest wine experiences. It was at an offline at an Italian restaurant (Il Corso in NY), and I don’t even remember what the wine theme was (certainly Bordeaux, though). What I do remember is pouring a wine, swirling, sniffing and then getting the most amazing notes of coffee in the nose. I was struck that a wine could provide such a lovely aroma - until I realized that the waiter was serving espressos to the table right behind me.
