The color is deeply-hued, bordering on opaque black-purple. The nose showcases the aromatic pedigree found in these wonderful Portuguese grape varietals combined with our artisan fortification brandy.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex, sweet spice and herbal elements of mace, anise, candied ginger and wintergreen, soar aromatically above the deeper fruit scents which can best be described as fresh-baked blueberry pie. The flavors are a port lover’s tour-de-force, with a dynamic flavor profile of cassis liqueur, wild elderberry and rich, decadent dark chocolate. Drier and more structured than Ruby, our 2007 Violeta Portuguese-style port is capable of being cellared similar to a fine Vintage port.

Winemaker Notes
Each varietal is fermented separately in small stainless steel tanks. Frequent punch-downs and pump-overs of the fermenting must is performed daily until reaching between 12 - 15 brix, when the must is pressed, fortification to 18 - 19% Alc. finishes the process. Aging takes place in 10 year old barriques for approximately 2 years prior to being bottled.
