Port, Lodi (non-vintage)

Our port was created especially for chocolate-based desserts. With a hint of sweetness to satisfy the sweet tooth in everyone, this wine is a wonderful accompaniment to many desserts. This wine is produced from some of the classic Portuguese varieties. The wine was aged in small oak barrels for approximately 40 months. The Port varieties used in the production of this wine were grown in the Lodi viticultural region of California. Located east of San Francisco Bay, the Lodi area enjoys a reputation for producing grapes rich in varietal character with great flavors. Many Old Vine vineyards are located within the region and the well-drained soil and warm summer climate, moderated by cooling bay breezes blowing in from the Sacramento River delta, makes the area ideally suited for port varieties. Deep ruby in color with rich fruit aromas, this wine has a rich, luscious mouth feel and soft, elegant tannins. The fruit concentration balances well with the alcohol and grape acidity to yield an appealing, elegant wine, bright on the palate, with great depth and concentration.
