RUBY RED WITH BRIGHT FRUIT FLAVORS AND SWEET BAKING SPICES Coming from the small 7-hectare vineyard of Quinta da Madalena, all the grapes that go into this port are still hand-harvested and foot trod. It’s a blend of reserve wines aged in barrels to mellow their flavor, but not too long, maintaining the fresh fruit flavors of a ruby port. This is medium to full-bodied, not too sweet, with a warm fruitiness in the center. It’s very rich and a great value! Serving Suggestions: Traditional w/ veined cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, Hook’s Blue, or Rogue’s Smoked Blue. Chocolate cake w/ raspberries. Also great on its own as a dessert.
