About the wine

Lush and decadent Port-style red - just in time for dessert!
  • Doce + Forte = Sweet and strong. This is sultry, wickedly full-bodied and dessert wine. Keep in mind, it's got 18.5% alcohol – so it'll keep you warm and toasty like a glass of Port.
  • Ana used traditional Portuguese varietals harvested from a 43-acre vineyard parcel in Jackson Valley to bring you a classic sweet treat terrific value. It's flush with intensely ripe berry flavors and warms your belly with spices like chocolate and cinnamon.

  • A very limited volume of this special fortified wine exists - so grab 2 while it lasts. It comes in a such a slender, sleek 500ml bottle. It'll just make you want to devour more!

Best before
Wood-aged Ports, like this one, are typically ready for early enjoyment, designed to be consumed while still relatively young. However, this wine can age for a very long time, due to the higher alcohol content - 10+ years...but you won't want to wait that long!

Serving advice
Port-style wine should be served just below room temperature, around 60 °F. My advice is to sip small amounts - it's not like a standard "still wine." This 2017 Doce + Forte has a higher alcohol (18.5%) and residual sugar content, and is meant to be enjoyed as a “sipper" or at the end of a meal. Ideally, once you pop the cork, you should drink the wine within 7-10 days. This is the reason why we bottled it in 500 ml bottles.

Food match
Blue cheeses, a nicely-aged gorgonzola, and other strong cheeses are a fantastic paring, especially along with roasted nuts and dried fruits, as the contrast of flavors goes incredibly well with the sweetness of the wine. But my favorites are rich chocolate desserts (chocolate mousse is one of my very favorites!), or a (few) squares of a good dark chocolate.
