since we opened our doors in 2011, we'd dreamed of a tawny-style aged port. lot 143 is that dream realized. barrel aged for over 5 years, this wine is as sophisticated as it is delicious. it's light and bright, balanced and softly sweet without being overwhelming. it begs to be slowly sipped with dark chocolate and candlelight.
