Terra d’Oro

Zinfandel Port

(Amador County, California)

On Bottle/Website:

* Aromas of raisined berry fruit, sugared dates, chocolate, caramel and orange peel

* The wine’s rich, lush grapy flavors also evoke raisin, cocoa, coffee and toffee

* 19% alcohol

* 93 points from Wine Enthusiast

My Notes:

Appearance:  clear, garnet/brown, rim variation, high viscosity

Nose: sound/clean, medium plus intensity, jammy and dried fruits

Palate: sweet, medium/full bodied, confirms nose, low tannins, high alcohol, low acidity, medium plus complexity, medium plus length

This port style wine was a fabulous after dinner drink.  The thickness coated my throat as I enjoyed it with a nice piece of dark chocolate.
