Madroña Port Blend Sierra Foothills New-World Port 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Porto is a sweet, fortified dessert wine made from native Portuguese varieties harvested from the steep mountain cliffs of the Duoro River Valley. Using those same grape varieties grown here in California the new-age, New-World port has been born. The seven Portuguese varietals are intensely colored and flavorful grapes which are inoculated and fermented hot until half the sugar has been converted to alcohol. At this time brandy spirits are added to arrest the fermentation producing a richly extracted and very memorable dessert wine which grows finer and finer with time.

Paul Bush manages the vineyards himself, adding to the family’s knowledge of grape varieties, clones within a variety, and microclimates. “Intensive hands-on vineyard practices make wines that are frankly exceeding what we thought possible at these high elevations,” says Paul, “And we’re going to keep on improving over the next 30 years.” Madroña Vineyards is a member of the Apple Hill Wineries and the El Dorado Winery Association.

Ein Zinfandel von grosser Komplexität. Intensive Frucht- und Gewürznoten. Ein breiter, fülliger überaus kräftiger Rotwein.
