DESSERT WINE (formerly Port Style)
Cru Specialty offers a classic ruby port with intense flavor and color. This lusty, fortified wine of superior quality was first enjoyed in the Porto region of Portugal. The addition of brandy gives an added strength of character to both the rich, sweet flavor and the bouquet.
For the Port lover that wants more, ask us about our in-house recipe. Nearly 30L in volume, it’s a bigger, richer port that emulates a good LBV or 10 year old Port. An award winner in its’ own right, we’ve done well with our recipe at the Winemaker International Competition.
