Cabernet Tiramisu

Cabernet Tiramisu with Gabrielle Collection Cask 321 2015

Light, elegant, and chocolaty!

Recipe by: The Culinary team of O'Connell Family


Wine Pairing: Gabrielle Limited Cask 321 Cabernet Sauvignon

PREP TIME: 30 minutes REST TIME: 1-24 hours TOTAL TIME: 1-24 hours



  • 6 oz. lady fingers (Savoiardi biscuits), 42 small or 20 large
  • 1¾ cups + 1 Tbsp. 2015 Gabrielle Limited Cask 321 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa County
  • 4 Tbsp. + 3 Tbsp. GC Napa Valley Natural Cabernet Sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks, organic pasteurized
  • 8 oz. (1 cup) mascarpone cheese
  • 3 large egg whites, organic pasteurized
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Optional: Cabernet Chocolate Sauce

  • ½ cup 2015 Gabrielle Limited Cask 321 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa County
  • ⅓ cup 70% or more dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. GC Napa Valley Natural Cabernet Sugar



  1. Optional Cabernet Chocolate Sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, reduce Cask 321 Cabernet by half. Add dark chocolate and Cabernet Sugar. Gently mix until blended. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare lady finger Cabernet dipping mixture: In a small shallow dish, combine 1¾ cups Cask 321 Cabernet and 4 Tbsp. Cabernet Sugar. Mix until sugar dissolves. Set aside.
  3. Prepare filling: In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks, mascarpone cheese, 1 Tbsp. Cask 321 Cabernet and 3 Tbsp. Cabernet Sugar. Whisk until creamy. In a second bowl, using an electric mixer or wire whisk, beat egg whites until medium-stiff peak. Gently fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture.
  4. Assemble Tiramisu: Dip each side of lady fingers very quickly (1 second) into the Cabernet dipping mixture and line them in one layer in an 8” square dish/pan. Spoon half the filling over the lady fingers. Use a spatula to cover evenly. Sift 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder evenly over layer and drizzle half the optional Cabernet Chocolate Sauce. Repeat with a second layer of dipped lady fingers, remainder of filling, dusting of cocoa powder and chocolate sauce. Place in refrigerator uncovered for 15 minutes to allow cocoa powder to set. Cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate an additional 45 minutes or up to 24 hours.

Optional Cabernet Chocolate Sauce

  1. Reduce ½ cup Gabrielle Collection Limited Cask 321 by 50%.
  2. Melt 2 oz. dark chocolate with the Gabrielle Collection LimitedCask 321.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp. GC Napa Valley Cabernet Sugar and whisk until blended.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool. When adding to the tiramisu you want the consistency pour-able but not too hot.
