White Chocolate Mousse with Red Wine Reduction Dessert Sauce

I have a weakness for desserts and wine. Those are two things that I am pretty positive that I couldn’t live without….well, maybe I could…but I am not really willing to try 😉 And if there was a time of the year that we splurge a bit, it is definitely the holidays. So, I decided that I should combine two of my favorite things into one cup of indulgent deliciousness.

I made a White Chocolate Mousse with Red Wine Reduction Dessert Sauce. Let me say that again….

For the Red Wine Reduction Dessert Sauce, you only need four ingredients. I used the CK Mondavi Scarlet Five as the star of the show because it is a full-bodied wine that offers flavors of black cherries and plums and ends in a soft, balanced finish. So it’s perfect to pair with white chocolate of course 😉 Then you just need sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract, all of which you probably have in your pantry right now.

You use half of the bottle of the CK Mondavi Scarlet Five Red Wine in the recipe for the Red Wine Reduction Dessert Sauce, so I definitely recommend pairing this dessert with the rest of the Scarlet Five red wine.  You may want to have an extra bottle on hand 🙂

Now that I have your holiday dessert covered, here are a few deals for you to keep a look out for while you are at the grocery store picking up ingredients. CK Mondavi has some special offers on wine and your appetizer plates. Look for CK Mondavi’s special holiday promotions on their wine bottles in stores now through January 31, 2017.

Why I love CK Mondavi Wines:

The first reason, of course, is the wine. A wine is only as good as it tastes. The second is the people. Their family winery, established in 1943, has been committed to creating fine wines for four generations. They harvest grapes at their peak of ripeness from prime California vineyards, creating wines with fully developed flavors.

Why I love CK Mondavi Scarlet Five Wine:

Scarlet Five is the winemaker’s signature Cuvee, an expression of five red varieties capturing the best of each vintage. It has the backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon, the finesse of Merlot, the structure of Petit Verdot, the floral essence of Cabernet Franc and the boldness of Malbec. In other words, it’s delicious.
