Dark pink coral color. Aromas of strawberry vinaigrette, georgia peach skin, dried fig, and caramel with a satiny, lively, sweet light-to-medium body and a peppery, interesting, medium-length poppyseed, watermelon candy, parsley, and dill finish with well-integrated tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A charming domestic rose Port; great for cocktails.

Domestic Port-Style Wine

Serve in a Port Wine Glass
Domestic Port-Style Wines are those made in the style of Portuguese Ports wines but grown and vinified in the United States. Wines made in this style are typically fortified with brandy or distilled grape spirits which causes fermentation to stop and also increases alcohol. Flavors are typically sweetfruity, nutty, and have a stronger alcohol presence than standard table wines. The best examples are highly comparable to true Ports.
