Back by popular demand this wine is bursting with rich, intense flavors and aromas. The traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherries and plums is supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart, with a luscious liquid chocolate rush in the middle of the palate, it finishes with beguiling dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee, vanilla and toast, all the way to a long, rich finish. Excellent within three months, this wine will age gorgeously.
Food pairings: Delicious on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.
Sweetness: Med-Sweet | Body: Full | Oak Intensity: Medium | Alcohol by volume: 15% - 16.5%

Chocolate Raspberry Port is crafted from the finest wine juice available and incorporates only natural flavors and essences. Like the traditional Speciale Port, the Chocolate Raspberry Port will finish out at 15-16.5% alcohol. While it is in the half-batch (3 US gallon) Speciale dessert wine format, this kit will be made to full-strength. No water additions will be necessary. The same equipment will be required as with any Speciale product, mainly a primary fermentation bucket and a 3-gallon carboy. 11.5 liters.
