Port 2007 Magnum

Port 2007 Magnum

Winemaker Notes

*Limited Supply*

Our dessert style wine was crafted from five traditional Douro wine grapes grown on our estate. This opaque wine has aromas of dried figs, blackberries, raisins, plums, cocoa, and exotic spice. Fine grained tannins create rich texture and a lengthy finish. Cellar for a decade to increase enjoyment and pair with a dark chocolate cake drizzled with an orange-raspberry sauce.

Awards, Ratings, Reviews

Outstanding!, "One could call this the Northwest's most honest Port-style wine for a variety of reasons, starting with Earl Jones' adherence to Portuguese varieties Tempranillo (53%), Bastardo (19%), Tinta Amarela (13%), Tinta Cáo (9%) and Touriga Naçional (6%). The experience opens with mature aromas of blueberry, black cherry and dark toast. Fruit, oak and alcohol already are adroitly integrated on the palate with rich blackberry, black cherry, blueberry and Belgian chocolate flavors." Wine Press Northwest

"a wine that any Port lover should experience, for I have not had a finer American version." Paul Gregutt, paulgregutt.com
