Try Portugal's most famous product: ruby port. A classic pairing with chocolate, it's sweet and concentrated enough for even the densest cakes. "Ruby" is port's designation for wines that are still red. These wines are fortified—more alcoholic—than table reds, so serve them in smaller, 3-ounce portions.

A concentrated red wine with velvety texture, oaky spice, and dark-berry fruit meshes with chocolate's mocha flavors.
