A beautiful Zinfandel Port. The rich flavor of the Zin offsets the sweetness perfectly and I now have a new favorite nightcap. This wine with a square of your favorite dark chocolate is guaranteed to raise the corners of your mouth. Also is good friends with coffee. One night out, I finished my meal with an espresso and when I got home, I had a small glass of Terra d'Oro and the essence of the two drinks danced lightly with each other until my head hit the pillow.
Terra d' Oro Zin Port was wonderful, everything it claims to be, sweet, fruity, well balanced, Yum! I served to a group of lady friends with rich chocolate cake- a great pairing. Even some non-wine drinkers liked it. Can't wait to have this again!
This isn’t a real Port since it is made from Zinfandel grapes in California. A proper Port is produced in Portugal from native grapes and would have a bolder and more intense flavor. However; if you haven’t yet tried a Fortified Wine and you enjoy a robust red wine then this one might be for you. I will definitely purchase Terra d’Oro Port again and serve it to friends who might not enjoy a bolder Port, Sherry or Madeira.
