Flavor and Aroma:
Ripe black cherry fruit, combined with mildly toasted oak, and the warmth of brandy, for a delicious port like rendition.

Aging Potential:
Enjoy this wine for the next five to ten years.

Thoughts for Food:
This is the perfect accompaniment for rich chocolate desserts. Add to your chocolate bread pudding recipe with a hint of cinnamon or simply pour over ice cream. Your favorite recipe for barbecue sauce will come alive, and a bit in a jerk marinade will work wonders. Sharp cheeses like Bleu and Romano love this product.

Wine Maker Comments:
Our distillation operation allows us to create some wonderful port-styled wines while incorporating our local fruit. This is no exception we CONSIDER this to be one of the best ways to preserve black cherries!
