External Reviews for Heitz Cellars Ink Grade Port
The deep hue of our Ink Grade Port sets the tone for the rich, full-bodied wine to follow. Mouth-watering flavors of dark berry with notes of ripe plum delight the palate with an appealing sweetness that never careens over the top.Our winemaker has created a smooth blend of eight Portuguese varieties with distinctive character from the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 vintages --- a marvelous dessert for grownups. The Wall St. Journal enthusiastically agreed in an article titled: Giving Sweets a Chance, 'If you ever see Heitz Cellars' Ink Grade Port . . grab it!'
The current winemakers blend of Heitz Port Ink Grade consists of six different Portuguese grape varieties from our Ink Grade Vineyard. It is a rich and flavorful Port reflecting the intrigue and distinctiveness of each variety. The harmonious blend is mostly from the 1998, 1999 and 2000 vintages with just a splash of the 2001 for some youthful fruitiness. This is a luscious Port packaged in a traditional Port bottle with a classic label that is glazed directly on the bottle. Please enjoy this unique Port produced in the Napa Valley.Technical NotesVarietals: Tinta Cao, Touriga National, Souzao, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Madeira, and BastardoAppelation: Napa ValleyAlcohol: 18%This is a California Wine.
