Along the Douro River in northern Portugal, some of the greatest fortified wines in the world are created. Rich in color and flavor, with lively pepper and fresh fruit flavors of wild cherries, this is a classic Ruby—the ideal gateway style to Port wine. Its palate is luscious and its acidity is high—suggesting that it’s the perfect Port wine to use in recipes or to sip. Serve this room-temperature or slightly chilled and pair it with a chocolate dessert, a mild blue cheese, or just as a digestif!
