The expert advice of George Nader suggests that you should pair Cabernet Sauvignon with food that is high in fat content and umami flavors. The wine in itself is rich and very complex. It has layers that are visible and then some that are hidden. The high level of tannin that lends a tobacco flavor makes it a perfect companion to foods like charred gruyere burger and braised short ribs.

Cabernet Sauvignon(http://www.totalwine.com/wine/red-wine/cabernet-sauvignon/c/000011 ) as per George Nader is not a wine that can be paired with Chocolates. The fruity flavors will be masked by the musky texture of chocolate. Instead use umami flavors to bring out the best in this full bodied red wine.
