100% Petite Verdot Port Style Ruby Dessert Wine.
Dark and delicious. A sweet mouthful of blackberry, raspberry, and dark chocolate flavors rounded and softened by the warmth of higher alcohol content (19.1%) and oak. Port style wines should be served just below room temperature, around 60 °F (16 °C). A popular way to serve Ruby Port in the summer (with a meal) is on the rocks with a peel of lime! Port style wine pairs wonderfully with richly flavored cheeses (including blue cheese and washed-rind cheeses), chocolate and caramel desserts, salted and smoked nuts, and even sweet-smoky meats (barbecue anyone?). A Ruby-style Port will stay fresh for about 2 weeks (a month if preserved in the fridge). Keep wines longer by storing them in a cool dark place and using a vacuum pump to remove oxygen.
