Our Cookie Cellars Macaron is a red dessert wine made in the traditional Port style using 100% Zinfandel grapes. This Port-style winemaking method develops a deep, rich color with aromas of prune, coffee and dark cherry. The mouth is smooth and silky with a pronounced sweetness. Soft tannins are present but do not overpower the mid-palate. This dessert wine, created in the style of Port, is richer, sweeter and heavier with a higher alcohol content than unfortified wines. It was fermented in barrels and experienced an “oxidative” ageing. The finish has even more mature characters such as cigar box and leather.
Serve it as an aperitif with dried nuts, dried fruit or desserts such as chocolate cake or ice cream. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Double Chocolate Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies.
This wine is not available for purchase and shipping to Montana, Louisiana, Maine or South Carolina due to state alcohol regulations regarding allowable alcohol percentage and bottle size.
