This port-style wine is aged in Bourbon Whiskey barrels from A. Smith Bowman distillery for 60 months & fortified shortly after fermentation with high alcohol brandy. Sweet & high in alcohol, our 2017 vintage 1762 is another outstanding wine out of our Port program. Made from Chambourcin, the wine still retains its signature red fruit flavors. This fruit has integrated over 5 years with the oak & bourbon characteristics which come from used whiskey barrels. These leads to a complex flavor profile with notes including strawberry, sweet cherry, chocolate, caramel with a well developed smokiness holding it all together.
