Port Wine Details
Price: $62.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2002 Cinsault Port is rich and elegant, with bold aromas of ripe plum, blackberry and hints of creamy vanilla with flavors of blackberry and black cherry influenced by just a touch of dark chocolate. Aged in small oak barrels for twenty-four months, this wine is smooth and decadent throughout the palate with a vibrant and lingering finish.

Varietal Definition
Semi-classic grape widely grown in southern France and also in the Lebanon. Used as component in some Cotes du Rhone red wine blends. Transplanted to South Africa, where it was erroneously thought to be a Rhone Hermitage grape, and now a widely grown varietal making a popular red wine in that country, it is also often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. It has also been used to create the hybrid grape species known as Pinotage.
