This is a great value in Port wines. Is it an amazingly complex Port? No, but its also less than $20. It is a tasty and warming beverage that is a crowd pleaser. Purple in color. The nose has chocolate, raspberries and slight raisins. On the palate, this is more like chocolate covered cherries. It is viscous and slightly sweet. There is some depth and complexity. Warming on the finish. This is great on its own, but use a small pour as there is a lot of alcohol. It will also work great with a chocolate dessert.
