Warres Heritage Ruby Porto wine review by (PB)
This wine is a beautiful cranberry jelly red with a bouquet of liquor infused dried cherries, rasins, a hint of pepper, anise and wood.
Palate--wonderfully sweet, spicy front with prunes and vanilla touches, gentle presence with lingering sweet black pepper and a surprise late finish of green apple.
You gotta love port! This is my favorite inexpensive port to date! I paid $12 or $13 for it and am loving it! If you have not tried port wine, what are you waiting for? It is a wonderful desert wine and for a real treat, try it with a dark chocolate square or dark chocolate cake desert of some kind.
As an per-dinner treat, or after treat, try it with a good bleu cheese.
At any rate, don't forget to raise a glass during the holidays!
