Although I am a huge fan of desserts, I often find myself too full after eating a meal at a restaurant to indulge in any. So recently, I’ve started getting into dessert wines, which satisfy my cravings for sweets without making me feel overly stuffed.

On my last trip to LA I had a glass of a wine called Dolce after dinner, and have been yearning for it ever since. Dolce, also known as Liquid Gold, is made in the Napa Valley from late-harvest Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. It’s rich and luxurious and has aromas of peach, ripe pear, and orange zest. I recommend sharing it among friends on a special occasion; it would also make a nice holiday gift.

Dolce Dessert Wine, $59.95 for a 375-milliliter bottle
