A delectable blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, Tempranillo and Touriga Nacional grown by Jet Wilmeth and family. Wonderfully rich and decadent, this vintage port was allowed to age, for over 4 years in American and French oak, creating a smooth wine with vibrant flavor. Upon opening, aromas of ripe blueberries, notes of caramel, and nuttiness indicative of Ports greet you. Essences of molasses and tea, dried dark fruits, such as prunes and figs, leading to caramel and toasted chocolate coat the palate. Try this wine with classic chocolate desserts, ripe blue cheeses, or branch out and enjoy with your next saucy BBQ dish. 

Aromatics: figs, blueberries, caramel, nuttiness

On the Palate:  molasses, dried figs, caramel, chamomile tea, prunes, toasted chocolate

This port is really smooth. Not too sweet. The perfect balance.
