    I like port wine and I like a zinfandel wine so that means I will be going to TJ’s to get this one.  🙂

    • Awesome!  Let me know what you think when you do. 

  • Lubna

    Hope you enjoy some good wines in France. 😎

    • Thanks my friend.  I will keep you posted.  🙂

  • Will share your blog with my Hubby.. lately is enjoying a zin port from Lake County California … me too : )

  • Love a good red wine, especially a zinfandel.

  • I’ve yet to try port, but zin is my favorite type of wine. Luckily, I live by a Trader Joe’s, so I think I’ll keep my eye out for this one next time I’m in there.

    • Uhhh!! You’re in for a treat and it’s not expensive. Have fun and enjoy. 🙂

    I love  dessert wines although I am not a big wine drinker

    • Dessert wines are very different from there sister wines. They are not something one can drink more then just a cordial glass because of how sweet they are. they really are fun after a nice dinner. 🙂

  • I love reading your wine reviews Susan , even though, for most of them I won’t be able to buy them until I get back to California. But what I liked best in this one is your description of the location. I felt immediately relaxed. I really enjoy a nice dessert wine on occasion, tho the trick is in trying not to have the second glass. All that sweetness is wicked the following day.

    • Thanks AK, I think it’s important to give some background about the wine and winery. It helps provide and since of what they are all about.

      I get that about about having a little more then you should with a dessert wine. It’s hard thou when it SOO good. 😀

    So who can resist a wine that pairs well with dark chocolate? 🙂

  • Having both this port and a slice of chocolate cake is definitely the meaning of “death by chocolate!” Thanks for the tip.

    • That’s great! You will very much enjoy the combination. 🙂

  • I enjoy a good glass of wine but I honestly have never had a dessert wine before. I’m definitely going to have to try this. I do have to tell you Susan, I wish I lived closer to you. Maybe, you’d have me over when you “serve this wine with a mild blue cheese on a crostini with honey and walnuts”. This sounds absolutely delicious.

    • The first time I was introduced to a good port paired with a crostini, blue cheese, honey and walnuts was a very good day. It is still one of my favorite treats to this day. I would love it If you lived near by. We could/would get into all kinds of trouble … LOL.

    You might turn me into a wine drinker yet.  Never considered having wine for dessert.  And there’s a Trader Joe’s just down the road.

    • One never knows where my wine posts could lead… LOL. Enjoy. 🙂

    I just opened my first bottle of this and I must say its sweet yet strong so im guessing pairing it with a cheese or a dessert maybe cheesecake or a tart as well. but it is very smooth and yummy!!
