Received this recipe at the Christmas WIne Trail. It is to die for! How many times can chocolate burst into your mouth in a bit of a bubble, savored by every taste bud and then give a bit of a silken smooth refresher as an afterthought. This reipe does it and then some. Enjoy adopted and shared from the Quincy Cellars Winery cook time is refrigeration time

This is a spectacular chocolate dessert. I would definitely make this for a dinner party. I would say it serves 12, as it is very rich and a slender slice is enough. Great recipe!!! 6/10 update: I just served it to my book group to rave reviews. Serve it with a few raspberries for a beautiful presentation.

This was spectacular. I would definitely make again. I need a smaller pan though. I only had a 10" springform, and it turned out very thin, so I added strawberries and whipped cream to give it height. The berries worked very nicely with the flavor of the wine, anyway, though!
