Dark burnt sienna color. Aromas of molasses-drizzled dates, dried figs, ground pepper, and tobacco with a round, lively, very sweet medium body and a peppery, elegant, long flourless chocolate cake, caramel latte, red licorice, orange marmalade, vanilla fudge, and candied nuts finish with moderate oak flavor. An absolutely delicious companion to blue cheese or chocolates.

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.
