Winemaker Notes:

At Fox Run, we make port from Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot, and sometimes Lemberger. We taste our fermenting juice daily, and wait for the moment when we no longer have just juice, but it hasn’t quite metamorphosized to wine yet. It’s a short-lived transition, and if we miss it, it is gone forever. At that moment, we press the grapes and arrest the fermentation with the addition of alcohol, and we pump our brand new port into barrels. Some is destined to be ruby port, which is blended young. We select the plump, juicy ports for this purpose. The more ethereal ports become part of our Tawny port program. Next comes the really hard part: we wait, because tawny port is only ready when it’s ready. Eventually, the strawberry and blueberry flavors of fresh young port give way to those of dried fruits, tea, butterscotch, and chocolate. Careful blending of barrels across varieties and ages yields a luxurious port in which dark, rich elements are balanced with some younger aromas, and palate-cleansing notes freshen the finish.

Food Pairing:

Our Fine Old Tawny Port makes a perfect dessert by itself, but we suggest you try it with savory foods as well.
