Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Ramos Pinto from Portugal. An exceptional dark color with blue tones. It presents a complex ensemble of aromas that combines red fruit compote, ripe plum andsmall-berried fruits with notes of dark chocolate and pepper. Elegant and well-structured on the palate, extremely full-bodied and full of fruit flavors, a good concentration and firm tannins that will give it great aging potential. A seductive, warm finish that is long-lasting and velvety. Served after dinner, it pairs well with cheeses from the Serra da Estrela region of Portugal, Stilton, Gorgonzola and other full-fat cheeses. An ideal accompaniment to a strong cigar. Should be opened two hours before serving and decanted.
