St. Barthelemy Merlot Port 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

NEW RELEASE! With its bright, regal red color, the Merlot port's aroma conjures up nougat, caramel and a hint of blackberry. A smooth mouth-feel gives way to a burst of spice, hints of licorice, and blackberry.

St. Barthélemy Cellars is our small, family owned and operated winery in Napa Valley. Our labor of love is producing premium varietal port wines unique in style and flavor. Each of our ports is made from a single grape variety, lending familiar characteristics while creating deep berry flavors and complexity. Fortified at a lower residual sugar level than most other ports, they are enjoyable as an apertif, main course accompaniment or dessert wine. Check out our story and order directly online in the Wine Shop. Better yet, join our Porte Au Vin Wine Club to guarantee access to our very limited production. We thank you for your interest in St. Barthélemy Cellars Varietal Ports. At St. Barthélemy Cellars, we strive to make ports that showcase the wonderful fruit flavors of the many grape varieties grown in California. Our goal is to produce varietal ports with lower residual sugar levels so that the grape’s natural and unique varietal characteristics are not masked by an overly sweet quality. Traditional Ports usually have a residual sugar of 12-14% whereas our ports are 5-8 % residual sugar. We have succeeded in creating a portfolio of seven premium varietal ports; Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Zinfandel, with additional varieties to be released in the future. All of our ports can be enjoyed with a wide range of food pairings or simply savored on their own. Rich and full-bodied, each wine’s flavors are enhanced by the aged brandy and low residual sugar.

This Merlot port is a fantastic offering - sweet plums and notes of cinnamon dance on the palette. This is my first port, but I think it is what port should be like - not overpoweringly sweet, great balance and heavy whip cream mouthfeel. Try some for dessert tonight!
