2012 Fortitude Dessert Wine
This wine is available only in half bottles (375ml). This wine can only be shipped within NY State.
This port-style fortified Zinfandel—Brooklyn Winery’s only dessert wine—is dark and brooding with a smooth silky flavor. The flavors in this fortified wine pair wonderfully with dark chocolate, and you can’t go wrong with wine and chocolate!
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
Dark and brooding, this bolstered (fortified) Zinfandel holds nothing back. A dry style of dessert wine that shows spiced black currants, baking spice, jam, blackberry with a rich, silky, mouthfeel and a fiery disposition.
