After Ten is a port-style dessert wine made from two of the four grape varietals traditionally used in the production of port. This wine is rich and balanced, with aromas of dried plum, tobacco, cedar and toffee with subtle hints of cacao and jammy black cherry.

SKU: 2014 After Ten

These grapes come from the Sierra Foothills, with the Tinta Roriz originating in Calaveras County and the Touriga National originating in Amador County. Unlike a vintage Port, this wine is fortified with brandy at a slightly higher level of sugar, and aged in neutral French Oak barrels for 2 years prior to bottling. As a result, the wine is smooth and velvety on release, and in addition to the black cherry and plum fruit aromas, it has developed a slight nuttiness usually associated with Tawny Port. 

The two grape varietals were vinified separately and subsequently blended. The grapes were picked at an average of 24.5 Brix and fermented down to 12 Brix before adding brandy to stop the fermentation.
