This sumptuous New Mexico Port is fortied with brandy. Fortifying
the wine kills yeast during fermentation to keep the residual sugars
high and preserve its natural sweetness and ripe berry flavors. The wine
has a rich, dark ruby color and heavy viscosity accompanied by a nose
full of sweet spices, caramel, licorice and candied fruits. Smooth as silk
on the palate with flavors of deep violet, sweet blueberry and honey
mingling with soft tannins, sweet cherry wood, oak and aromatic spice.
 
Pair this wine with berry-topped cheesecakes, rich chocolate cakes and
other sweet and flavorful desserts. It also perfectly complements blue
cheeses such as Stilton, Gorgonzola and Roquefort.
