Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny Porto

Apple picking is a fall favorite, which translates in my mind to apple pie season! After your trek to the orchards, stop into your local store to pick up a bottle of Fonseca 10-year old Tawny Port. It is my favorite pairing for a freshly baked apple pie. The medley of flavors in homemade apple pie mimicks this Tawny Port with baked apple notes, dark spices, cinnamon, clove, and of course, caramel and brown sugar. You can’t help but feel a sense of warmth and home take over. Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream!

Tasting Notes

This wine is russet with brilliant crimson highlights and ripe black fruit and butterscotch aromas. A smooth, silky texture and subtle oak nuances with fresh acidity and smooth tannins culminate in a long, elegant finish.
