Churchill Port Churchill's Reserve NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage Character Reserve is youthful, fruity and well balanced. Easy to drink, it displays the characteristic firm backbone and structure of Churchill Ports denoting its grade a origins. An ideal introduction to port drinking. VCR is a Premium Ruby Port blended from the wines of different years from their top grade 'A' quintas. It has plenty of structure and layers of flavour. Four years of ageing in oak gives it a measure of complexity whilst still retaining a dark ruby colour, and presenting itself as fresh and fruity. The quality of this wine is such that it is described as 'Vintage Character', putting it in a category above its competitors. Because it is refrigerated and filtered prior to bottling, the wine is ready for immediate drinking. Johnny Graham, their winemaker describes it the following way: 'Vintage Character Reserve is youthful, fruity and well balanced. Easy to drink, it displays the characteristic firm backbone and structure of Churchill ports denoting grade A origins. An ideal introduction to port drinking.'

Fallon is located in the high desert Lahontan Valley area. The climate is similar to that of Eastern Washington state. Churchill Vineyards is Nevada’s second licensed winery and first “Estate Winery.” In September 2004 Churchill Vineyards successfully created its first vintage of premium estate wines.
