Our 2016 Port-style wine is a juicy one. Jammy fruit dominates the palate with the perfect balance of sweetness. Aged a little longer than the original Steamboat which intensified the flavours and gave us a truly world-class "after dinner drink".
It was barrel aged for 40 months in Hungarian and French oak (We couldn't wait the 20 years that it takes to age Bob's favorite port, Taylor 20). We also fortified our port using distilled spirits from Old Fourth Ward Distillery, Atlanta.
Pairs perfectly with anything chocolate, and our very own hand selected & rolled Yonah Cigars (available only though the tasting room).

Good to Know
This style of wine received its name, "port", in the later half of the 17th century from the seaport city of Porto at the mouth of the Douro River, where much of the product was brought to market or for export to other countries in Europe.
