Description

TASTING NOTE

This port style dessert wine exudes richness, balanced structure and intensity from the moment it is poured. Deeply colored and sporting aromas of dates, dried fruit, Bourbon and cherry, this wine’s nose evolves as it opens up in the glass. Smooth, with soft tannins, balanced sweetness and supple texture, the flavors in the wine include blueberry, cocoa, vanilla, cherry cola and sarsaparilla. The finish remains focused, vibrant and sweet.

PAIRING

The Encore makes a great accompaniment to dense chocolate cake with ganache or simply serve it with dark chocolate sea-salted caramels or flourless chocolate cake. This wine is also a great companion to blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort and many types of sharp cheddar.
