Winemaker's Notes:

This inky dark, red-violet port clings to the glass. The aromas are a sensory heaven with raspberry truffle, dense chocolate, brown sugar, nutmeg, and pomegranate all fused together. A smooth, full mouth-feel is accompanied by cedar flavors and a burst of cherry, blackberry, and dusty cocoa. The richness of this port makes it a good match with dark chocolate, cigars, or strong cheeses.
My Notes:

About St. Barthelemy Cellars:

This family venture into the wine business started just a few years ago in 2000. After living in the beautiful Napa Valley for 20 years and enjoying the fruits of everyone else’s labors, Bart and Cynthia Barthelemy decided to join the fun. Since then, they’ve found that not only is it fun but very hard work! They asked their daughter, Angelique, and her husband, Jason, if they would like to join forces and help build and grow the new company. The idea was to take a different path than most of the vintners in the wine business and become a port-only winery. Varietal ports, made from the wonderful, high-quality grapes grown in California that would focus on the individual traits of each varietal.
