Wine Review: This deep purple colored Port opens with a pleasant mild boysenberry pie bouquet with hints of black cherry and plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and slightly sweet. It also does a nice job hiding the alcohol. The flavor profile is a stewed plum and black currant blend with hints of black pepper, raisin, dark chocolate and five spice. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. The Panel thought this Port was food friendly and suggested pairing it with a charcuterie plate or with cherries jubilee. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: All our ports are made in the "house style" namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with our wines, we search for harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards and we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin. Jorge is very pleased with the 2013 LBV. It has fabulous dark, black cherry and black currant fruit flavors, a great richness on the palate while at the same time exhibiting a wonderful balance and freshness. The Port gives immense pleasure for immediate drinking. Delicious with dessert, especially chocolate, cheese or on its own.
