Jacuzzi Family Vineyard Aleatico Sonoma Valley Late Harvest 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Jacuzzi’s Late Harvest Aleatico is an explosion of plums and flowers with notes of licorice. The high alcohol makes for a very weighty wine and the high natural sugar is well-balanced against the grape acid. A serious dessert wine, not to be taken lightly. Try it with a big, flavorful, fruit-laden chocolate cake.
