Tonight we are going with our sweet tooth instinct, and it paid off nicely… 😀
Dark Inky in color with a purplish rim.
Beautiful nose of blackberries, blueberries, figs, raisins, sweet cherries, strawberries, cooked plums, vanilla, wood, leather, licorice, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Sweet and fruity on the palate with cherries, currants, blackberries, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, leather, chocolates, tobacco, cooked cherries, strawberry pie, alcohol and black pepper.
Long finish with soft tannins and sweet cherries.
A Great port that is enjoyable by itself or with sweet desserts.
I Paired it with a banana bread cake and vanilla ice cream.
Well balanced with enough acidity for all that sweetness.
Had it before, and didn’t like it as much. Might be the company…
20% alcohol by volume.
