2012 Amador Ice
Tawny in color and loaded with aromas of stewed peaches and peanuts. Concentrated apple and pear juice flavors wade in and out of freshly baked oatmeal & apple cookies. Silky and rich with vibrant acidity, this wine is a terrific compliment to any fruit based dessert with Christmas spices.
2006 Renwood Vintage Port
Made from true Port varieties, the 2006 Port oozes aromas of black licorice and warm caramel candy. Cooked plums lead the way to fresh dark fruit that rides high on the palate. Excellent balance and fruit sweetness make this wine one for the ages.
FERMENTATION and AGING
All of the grapes we use are native to Portugal, except the Tinta Roriz, which is originally from Spain, where it is known as Tempranillo. Renwood’s Vintage Port is made in the traditional way: a short time in small neutral cooperage, the then bottled. After fermentation and fortification, we chose to age the final blend in neutral American oak barrels for three years to impart softness to the highly concentrated fruit character of this wine.
