If you are looking to make a dish with the most incredible flavor profiles, this is it. Shrimp is optional. Either way, the flavors, including the sweetness of the Chocolate Wine, really pop. This with a salad is all you really need for an unforgettable delicious dinner. Oh, the rest of the bottle of Chocolate Wine is a must have for dessert.
