Dusty black garnet color. Aromas of cherry gummy candy and menthol with a syrupy, vibrant, very sweet medium-to-full body and a snappy grape stem and balsamic reduction finish with medium, chewy tannins. A sweet port-style wine for cheese pairings.

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.
