Dark black garnet color. Fruity aroma of table grapes with a lightly tannic, lively, sweet medium-to-full body and a hot, medium-long raisin and chocolate, spice cake, leather and mint, and sweet pea blossom finish with well-integrated tannins. A distinctive port that makes exceptional use of the Marquette grape.

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.
