Thurston Wolfe 2010 Touriga Nacional PortLast spring, this fortified dessert wine by Wade Wolfe won a gold medal at the Great Northwest Wine Competition, and it hasn’t lost a step. A pure production of Lonesome Spring Vineyard fruit with this traditional Port-style variety hints at strawberry, Craisins, Raisinette and wintergreen in the nose. Flavors of dried cherry and chocolate give it richness as it transitions to a finish of strawberry pie. The adroit integration of alcohol makes this dangerously easy to enjoy.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 50 cases

Alcohol: 19%
