Rancho Zabaco Cabernet Port (half-bottle) 1997

Port from Sonoma County, California

Item No. 42200

Winemaker's Notes

Our first vintage release of Rancho Zabaco Cabernet Sauvignon Port is a traditional port while keeping true to the cabernet sauvignon varietal character. This port is medium to full bodied. The warm climate of the Alexander Valley brings out a dark ruby color, as well as ripe black berry flavors. Intense dark chocolate lingers on the palate.

Pairs well with white or dark chocolate desserts as well as raspberry torte and Stilton cheese. Enjoy now or age up to 10-15 years, where the extra years will only enhance the wonderful brown spice and vanilla flavors.

Alcohol Level: 17.4%
