That little red guy with the tiny horns and tail is back and he is cheering as you pull the cork from a bottle of Consilience Zinfandel Port. Just one sip and you want to keep the port all for yourself. After all, why else would the bottle be personal sized? You remind yourself that generosity is a virtue and so you share, but only with your favorite friends. A little indulgence is good for the soul and so you ponder decadent port pairings like flourless chocolate cake, espresso truffles, crème brulee and New York cheesecake…yummmmm. Then all of a sudden, inspiration strikes like lightning and you have the best Sunday morning pairing idea yet – waffles and port, the "new" breakfast of champions!
