Dark brown brick red color. Interesting aromas of chocolate wafer cookies, black tea, coconut cream, malted milk balls, spiced raisins, and hints of peppermint with a supple, crisp, sweet medium body and a warming, breezy tootsie roll, black licorice, cinnamon pastry, and chocolate-dipped pretzels finish with moderate oak flavor. A dense and chocolatey domestic port to serve with cookies after the meal.

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.
