      Port is good for blood circulation according to Chinese. And chocolate makes everyone happy!

      Chocolate plus port is somehow better than chocolate.

      The most memorable port I’ve tasted was at a dinner with my best friend at Cin Cin. It was a grandfather port that we paired with one of the best tiramisu desserts I’ve ever had. Sweet port, yummy tiramisu and great company – what else can you ask for? =) Would love to attend this event and have yet another memorable evening involving port.
