Thurston Wolfe is proud to announce the release of our first eight year old Tawny Port. In 2005 we reserved four barrels of Zinfandel port from the Zephyr Ridge vineyard for this project.

At the end of eight years the wine was concentrated down to three barrels and it was designated ready for bottling. Dark tawny in color with a ruby hue from the Zinfandel, the wine is redolent of figs, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla bean and Madeira with flavors of cherry liqueur, roasted almonds and plum preserves. Perfect by itself or with your favorite chocolate desserts, pecan pie or Turkish coffee with chocolate curls gelato.
