Review 68: Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port

Review 68
Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port: 19% abv

This is a zinfandel port, meaning it is made with zinfandel grapes. As you can probably tell, this is a red port, and has a nice rich flavor to boot. I'm watching Olympic Gymnastics as I'm writing this review, making it extremely difficult to provide more insight on Terra d'Oro as a company. Check them out, as they are in California and make anice wine. To the tasting notes. On the nose, you can find plenty of interesting notes, including grape jelly, strawberry, cherry, blueberry, slight oak, vanilla, slightly grainy, confectioner's sugar, with a slightly spicy note. The taste is hugely raisons with, confectioner sugar, black cherry, strawberry, raspberry, yeastiness, malt and chocolate to boot. The finish ends with more powered sugar, sweet orange, tons of raisons, cinnamon, and vanilla. Overall, this is a good wine with tons of sweetness, and shows quality in the world of ports. Worth trying. 

Score: 8.5/10
