Gold color. Aromas of vinyl, cider apples, cinnamon and clove spiced raisins, packaged fruit cake, and dried apricot with an oily, vibrant, very sweet medium body and a warming, medium-length raw cashews and carnation finish. A nice after-dinner sipper.

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.
