Default Did I once have a "Chocolate" flavored wine??

About 10 years ago I had tasted a red wine at a restaraunt and it had sort
of a "chocolaty" flavor or aftertaste, which I found quite appealing....I
hadn't been eating chocolate, and I know for sure it was the wine that gave
me this pleasant flavor....
Any ideas as to what I may have been drinking?? I am relatively
inexperienced, like Merlots and Grenache....but that "chocolaty" flavor
would be a real treat again.....
Any thoughts??

thanx in advance

Hmmm... isn't Rosenblum really in the wilds of
Alameda, that's a tasting room - the winery
equivalent of an outlet store - in the urban
sprawl of Healdsburg?

True, true but you never get to the vineyard and I'm not sure from what
vineyard their chocolate port comes.
