It’s a full-bodied and elegant liqueur-like wine, a little sweeter than most ports, with a light amber to pale-salmon color and a smooth, silky mouthfeel. We arrest the fermentation of the wine at an early stage with the addition of an almost 20-year-old pot-still brandy from Carneros, causing the grapes to retain the maximum of their sugar content, around 15% residual, and an alcohol of about 18%. Store in a cool spot, chill in the refrigerator just before opening and serve as an aperitif or dessert wine. After opening it will keep well in the refrigerator for weeks or months.
