Forté  -  A fortified wine produced in the port style

VINTAGE - 2006

APPELLATION - AMADOR COUNTY, SIERRA FOOTHILLS, CALIFORNIA.

VINEYARD NOTES:-
Grown on steep mountainous terrain in the higher elevations of the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, California.

WINEMAKERS NOTES:-
Produced in the traditional Late Bottled Vintage Port style from 100% Portuguese varieties. Being a European trained winemaker, I will not use European appellation names such as Champagne and Port for wines we produce in California. Therefore, we have come up with the name Forté for our port style wine.

TASTING NOTES:-
The first taste exhibits notes of cherry licorice and cinnamon spice, flowing into vanilla and tobacco with a mid palate of English hard candies and fresh straw. Soft tannins flow into a long, sweet, black plum finish. Perfect companion to nuts and a salty blue cheese.
