2008 Williams Selyem Vista Verde Vineyard Port | San Benito County California 375ml

375 ml half bottle
20.0% abv
Port-style Dessert Wine (red)

Traditional Portugese varieties - Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao, Tinta Francesca and Tnta Madeira - were used to create this Port made in the traditional style. A complicated wine with aromas of plum fruit, citrus blossom, raisin, fig, fruit cake, candied fruit, chocolate, espresso and hints of Indian spices. The palate is smooth with rich, influential tannins. Flavors of dark berry fruits, boysenberry jam, espresso, raisin, fig and chocolate-coated orange peel tease the palate, followed by a long, supple finish with a hint of Grand Marnier, bittersweet chocolate and anise. This is an age-worthy Port that will go on for years. | Williams Selyem Notes

The Vista Verde Vineyard in San Benito County is one of the few Estate Vineyards of Williams Selyem, owned by proprietors John & Kathe Dyson. The 12 acres are unique in their soil composition of gravel that is heavily laced with limestone.
Falling Bright Notes

Inky purple. Potent aromas and flavors of blueberry, cassis, licorice, violet and dark chocolate, with a peppery topnote. Supple and broad, offering very sweet dark fruit preserve flavors and an exotic touch of smoky Indian spices. Becomes more floral with air and finishes with impressive sweetness and a lingering violet pastille quality. | Stephen Tanzer for IWC, 92 points

This Port-style wine is rich, sweet and frankly a joy to drink. It has chocolate-covered raisin, blackberry and blueberry jam and sweet oak flavors, with refreshing acidity for balance. | Wine Enthusiast, 90 points
