Garnet color. Interesting aromas of molasses, peach cobbler, amburana wood, bergamot, and soy with a silky, vibrant, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a warming, brisk chocolate syrup, sugared berries, and cinnamon-spice finish with light oak flavor. A solid American Port for after dinner indulgence.

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.
