Dark color. Aromas and flavors of raisin, fruit vinegar, and muesli with a round, tangy, sweet light body and a buoyant finish with notes of cinnamon tea with barky tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A nice after dinner sweet treat.

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.
