Blueberries in Black Pepper-Syrah Syrup

Thayer Allyson Gowdy

Enough already with pairing wine with each dish; just put it right in the dessert. Syrah often has blueberry flavors to contribute; add a little black pepper to the real berries to clinch the match. Prep and Cook Time: about 15 minutes. Notes: Serve these berries with dark chocolate truffles.
