Sip of the Day

April 21, 2021

Day #111 of the year.

Croft Distinction

It’s Wednesday and by this time of the week, most of us need either chocolate or a glass of vino. Why not treat yourself to a taste of both? Open a chilled bottle of Croft Distinction Port, a ruby wine with aromas of jam, raisins, and black plums, and break out some dark chocolate-covered cashews or almonds. This treat will most definitely refresh you for the remainder of the week. (And don’t worry, you can just place the Port back into the fridge to enjoy on future Wednesdays!) Cheers!

ORIGIN

Duoro Valley, Portugal

Grapes

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela

Tasting Notes

This deep ruby-colored wine offers ripe, jammy aromas of raisins and black plums leading to youthful black fruit flavors on the palate. The wine is sweet and full-bodied with medium tannins. Well structured and balanced, it has excellent length.
