Perhaps this should be cross-posted in the Wine Forum, but I'll let the Administrators decide.

Spoiler alert -- it's impossible to find a good pairing for Thin Mints:

Thin Mints with 2010 Azienda Agricola La Torre Brunello di Montacino

Our luck had to run out eventually, and this proved to be our first miss, even though the Brunello was everyone's favorite wine on its own. And who doesn't love a good Thin Mint? But together, they were disastrous. Some tasters reacted more strongly than others: "It makes my tastebuds angry," Trimble declared, while Mora said the first bite "sent me into sour convulsions." The overall effect was unpleasantly similar to toothpaste and orange juice.

Barolo Chinato is more chocolate friendly.
