Brown brick red color. Aromas of dried figs and strawberries, quince paste, and persimmon with a slightly chewy, lively, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long spiced apple and toffee finish with moderate oak flavor. An excellently balanced Port-style wine that will be divine with cheese.

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.
