Deborah Black Sage Pipe 2007

Why This Wine: The Pipe (like Port) is a dessert in itself with ripe cherry and dark berries on the nose, chocolate, plum, figs, vanilla and a nutty finish on the palate. As a chocoholic, I've tried it with a Madagascar chocolate bark chunked with Madagascar chocolate nibs. It's death by chocolate with a deliciously happy ending!

Joe Huff Estates Winery Zero De Gris 2009

Why This Wine: The nose has aromas of apricot, fig and candied lemon peel with marmalade and baked apple notes on the palate. There is a beautiful balance of acidity and sweetness that lingers on the finish. Pair it with pineapple & macadamia nut tart or a chilled compote of peach, nectarine or apricot with crème frâiche.

Adam Jost Vineyards Vidal Icewine 2006

Why This Wine: This full-bodied icewine displays intense honey, peach, and spice notes, combined with some lively lemon acidity on the finish. I had it for the first time with a caramelized lemon tart with sea salt and it was the beginning of many endings at the dinner table in my house!

Pat Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Cuvee Catharine Brut Sparkling White

Why This Wine: A delicious, frothy, just-barely dry bubbly from the Niagara region. I love this with a dessert that is filled with berries, or a plate of cheese and fruit. Recommended by a co-worker last fall, it's got a home in my heart.

Tom VIGNOBLE DU MARATHONIEN Vidal Icewine 2010

Why This Wine: When I met winemakers Line and Jean Joly, I was impressed by their passion, particularly for their icewine. With its caramelized peach, apricot and honey flavours, I find that this beautifully balanced vidal icewine is an excellent match for fruit-based desserts.
