Port 2009


The king of dessert wines, port is made by adding grape spirits to a fermenting red wine before all the natural sugar is consumed by the yeasts.  The result is a rich, sweet wine, high in alcohol that is meant to be sipped in small portions.  We like it with sliced apples, walnuts, and a blue-veined cheese.  Yummy!
