Wine Review: This cloudy Mississippi mud colored "15 Year Old Port" opens with a plump raisin and fruit cake bouquet with hints of mincemeat and rum. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is rum soaked golden raisin and molasses blend with notes of stewed prune with notes of dried cherry, dates and a hint of apricot at the very end. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. We also found the alcohol to be well-managed as well. The Panel would pair this Port with a flourless chocolate cake. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Produced from 100% Napa Valley fruit and made in the traditional port style. Our 15-year old Port comes from a blend of several Port wines made with traditional Port varieties. Aged in small oak casks for a minimum of 15 years, although some are more than 20 years in barrel. It’s tawny, plum color and caramelized aromas come from the long aging process in barrels, giving the wine a unique spicy character and sweet oak tones to go along with the cocoa, raspberry and milk chocolate bouquet. The lively acidity and berry flavors pair along aged cheeses (especially blue cheese) and charcuterie.
