2016 Dulce Zinfandel

Dessert in a bottle that pairs well with so many other desserts!

Aromas of blackberry jam with a hint of black pepper and spice prepare your taste buds for those flavors and a dark cherry finish. This full-bodied zinfandel dessert wine is made in the traditional port style by fortifying the must with high quality brandy at just the right time during fermentation. The result is a well-balanced combination of acidity and sweetness that won’t weigh down your palate like a syrup. You can sip this wonderful concoction on it’s own or pair it with dessert. We like it with chocolate but it’s also likely to work with any number of other sweet offerings or pungent, creamy cheeses. Cheers!

Aromas de mora y un toque de pimiento negra y especies preparan el paladar para un rico sabor de ceresa negra. Este vino de postre es robusto y hecho en el estilo tradicional de Oporto. Al momento en que el mosto tiene la cantidad de azúcar necesaria, se le agrega brandy de alta calidad. El resultado es un vino bien balanceado con una combinación de dulcura y acidez que es deliciosa pero no empalagosa. Este vino es un deleite solo o acompañado con un postre. Hace buen maridaje con chocolate o un buen queso añejo. Salud!
