Day #335 of the year.

Croft Reserve Tawny Porto

In the last 4 days, you’ve been catapulted in the holidays. You’re world is now a snow globe filled with Christmas trees, twinkling lights, shopping, and tempting foods. Now that were in it, lets all agree to switch into our stretchy pants and embrace all holiday indulgences. I’m talking Croft Reserve Tawny Port and leftover pecan pie on a Monday, because during the holidays, there are no rules. And the diet can start come January. Not only is this port a treat, but the bottle is also a beautiful glass container perfect for mini sparkling lights once you’ve finished the wine. This croft is ultimate holiday comfort in a bottle that can then be recycled and used to be a charming addition to your holiday décor.

Tasting Notes

Light brick red, with an amber hue. On the nose, rich red fruit, notes of caramel, raisins, and cloves. On the palate, cardamom, spice, butterscotch and elegant redcurrant, interwoven with attractive nutty aromas. Smooth and round on the palate, full of luscious strawberry jam flavors with an elegant finish.
