A very off-the-wall alternative to port, Rubis is a chocolate-flavoured Spanish fortified wine made from the Tempranillo grape (more usually seen in Rioja) and infused with a luxurious chocolate essence. Chocolate AND red wine?! The ladies are going to love this.
I would be satisfied with smelling it alone is just brings euphoria to the nose. The taste as well it has very quickly became a personal favourite within seconds of opening the bottle I recommend it for anyone to try.

Found it in a christmas market in Liverpool a couple of years ago - gorgeous stuff!

After stumbling across this wine at Borough Market I went in search of chocolate wines and have to say this is by far the best I have found. A fortified wine, it tastes like a cherry port with a chocolaty finish. Very smooth and sweet without being sickly.

This is absolutely gorgeous. Very smooth and tastey. Not acidic at all. Wish I had purchased 2. Would make a great Christmas gift.

This is fabulous. First found at Burghley Horse Trails it goes especially well with chilli nuts. Sounds a funny mix but you really should try it. Yum Yum

I'm not a red wine expert but I know what I like and this is a perfect drink in front of the fire on a cold evening. Recommend highly

Really not keen on the combination of red wine and chocolate, but the ladies seem to love it! Black Forest Gâteaux describes it perfectly.

This is a little piece of heaven in a glass, im not a huge wine drinker (and almost hate red wine!) but this doesn't even taste like normal wine, its wonderful!

whoever created this drink is a genius - bigger bottles please

superb starts with a good cherry flavour (from the 100% temranillo grape) and finishes with a good chocolaty flavour , best served chilled with chocolate desserts , would highlt recomend this as a good alternative to a desert wine

After a scrummy taste of this wine I bought some back from the BBC food show. Arrived home and dropped it... no, not down my neck, on the floor :-(. I'm about to purchase some more today and p'haps leave a review when i've dropped a bottle...down my neck this time :-). Give it a go it's delicious!!
