It has the structure to age well over many years.

The grapes for this dessert wine came from Pedroncelli’s estate vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. The four acre vineyard was planted in 1995 with these traditional Port varietals: Tinta Madeira, Tinta Cao, Touriga Nacional, and Souzao. They are harvested as a field blend and each of the varieties contribute acid, color and flavor components.
