What Do You Pair With Halloween Candy?

Deep honeyed amber in color, with long, slow legs moving around the glass with agility. The nose is boozy at first with a strong roasted nut core and poached pear framing aromas that suggest sweetness. But there's no heavy sugar to weigh this "seco" down. Instead, the palate echoes the aromatics with brilliance, complexity, and efficiency. The resulting impression is akin to an aged tawny port without the residual sugar. Unexpectedly intriguing and very grown up. Pair with Hershey's milk chocolate and almond bar. 89 points. (Sample)
