Chocolate Dessert Wine

Dessert wines from Madera are among California's finest treats, and this chocolate port-style red wine is a winner. Savor on its own or drizzled over ice cream or crepes.

Wine History: The Madera appellation is renowned for its dessert and port-style wines. Located in California's San Joaquin Valley just south of Yosemite National Park, the region has a hot, arid climate that's tempered by the nearby San Joaquin River and Sierra Nevada mountain range. The climate and soil are ideal for producing the sweeter varietals used in dessert wines and ports.

Tasting Notes: Have your chocolate and drink it too. This rich, mouthwatering port-style red wine is bursting with chocolate flavor and a bittersweet aroma of cocoa, leading to a warm and memorable finish. A rich treat to enjoy with - or as - dessert.
