Garnet color. Aromas of dried figs and dates, chocolate croissant, and walnuts with a round, vibrant, sweet light-to-medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-long butterscotch drizzled berries, peach-bread pudding, cherry preserves, black pepper, and clove finish. A very tasty, complex Port-style wine to be enjoyed with cheese, pastries, and cocktails.

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.
