2014 Port
 
About This Wine:
Sourced from the Bellicitti Ranch in suburban Saratoga, this unique single vineyard port is comprised of 58% Petite Sirah & 42% Zinfandel, two of the ancient grapes that were introduced to California in the 19th Century. We terminated the natural fermentation after just a few days by adding high proof grape alcohol, and the two lots were then barrel aged separately in French oak for 2½ years before blending. The richness of the Petite Sirah is complemented beautifully by the fruit and spice of the Zinfandel. It has a deep youthful ruby color, and a vibrant fruity nose crammed with medjool dates, raspberry, cinnamon and gingerbread aromas interwoven with notes of cayenne pepper. The palate is full bodied with a smooth velvety texture, delicately balanced by mouth-filling tannins, and the juicy red fruit flavors linger through a luscious finish. Enjoy it at cellar temperature with roasted or grilled game meats, dark chocolate, pungent cheeses and dried fruit, or on its own after a meal. It comes in a generously-sized 750ml bottle, and the high alcohol content will permit it to last for weeks after it is first uncorked.
Pure decadence!
