Seasonal dessert ideas for afternoon birthday party

I'm having some friends (probably 8-15 people) over this weekend to celebrate my birthday. I want to serve a smoky black Russian Caravan tea and a California sparkling wine as the beverages. Anybody have any recipes for me? I would like some kind of seasonal fruit dessert and maybe something with chocolate that would taste good with both the tea and the wine. I'm in the SF Bay Area.
