Cookie Cellars 2019 California Macaron
This red dessert wine was made as a Port-style wine with 100% Touriga Nacional.
The winemaking techniques employed offers a wine with deep, rich color and aromas of prune, blackberry and cherry. The finish has mature characters of cedar, cigar box and leather. The mouth is smooth and velvety, balancing the alcohol and sweetness. Soft fruit tannins are present in the mouthfeel. The mid-palate exhibits the same red fruit as the nose. The high alcohol content and sweetness delight in the finish. Serve it as an “aperitif” or after dinner with dessert.
500 ml bottle. Due to state alcohol regulations, this wine is not available for purchase and shipping to Louisiana, Maine, Montana, South Carolina and Vermont.
