A wonderfully enjoyable dessert wine with a beautiful deep ruby color. You will be enticed by an aroma of vanilla and pomegranate and find notes of currant, fig, honey, and coconut with a long berry finish. To round out your dessert, consider serving with blue cheese, extra dark chocolate, or fresh berries.
Take care to note the alcohol content is 20%; most do not find that noticeable while drinking.
