Brown brick red color. Aromas and flavors of dates, mincemeat pie, carob, honey-drizzled panettone, and pomegranate molasses with a round, vibrant, sweet medium body and a warming, medium-length finish conveying notes of orange zest and sunflower butter with light oak flavor. A rich, sweet fortified wine that will be fun and festive for the winter months.

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.
