This Port-style wine is the perfect accompaniment to any dessert table! It is deeply garnet in color and full-bodied with a profile of dark fruit perfectly balanced with hints of caramel, cinnamon, tart cranberry, and light floral notes.
We fermented this wine until it was down to about 8 brix of remaining natural sugar, then stopped fermentation by fortifying with neutral spirit, followed by a two-month extended maceration on the skins before pressing. The extended maceration helped smooth out the wine’s structure and quell some of the alcohol bite.
We strongly recommend you pair this wine with a dark chocolate mousse with orange zest. This pairing truly allows this wine to soar! Chocolate cake, truffles, gingerbread, cheesecake, and candied nuts are also great choices for sweet pairings. For savory pairings we suggest blue cheese, either on a cheese plate or as a dip possibly with some bacon included.
Aged in neutral oak barrels for 36 months.
