Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Features

2008 Vermelho Forte 500ml 3-Pack

This wine is a classic "vintage port" type of port  (ie., not ruby).  Flavors are rich and complex with lots of anise and brambleberry in both the mouth and the nose.  Additionally, in the mouth are great notes of sour cherry and vanilla from the oak.  The nicest thing about this wine is that it is wonderfully "round" in the mouth.....just perfectly balanced between acidity and alcohol and tannins and sweetness.  Both varietals show through both distinctly and in complement to each other....the Touriga adding fruit and structure and the Tinta Madera adding body and richness.

Winery Details

Kent Rasmussen Winery

Founded:
1986
Owner:
Kent Rasmussen
Location:
St. Helena, CA
Since its modest beginnings, the Kent Rasmussen Winery has evolved into one of the most important producers in the Napa region. The winery outgrew its tractor shed barrel room on Cuttings Wharf Road in the Napa Carneros long ago. In 1995, Kent and Celia established a new winemaking facility in a turn of the century slaughterhouse, on the Silverado Trail in St. Helena. Refined over the years, it now houses business offices, an enology lab and lab tasting room, a wine library and upgraded production equipment. The modern crusher, press, tanks, catwalks, refrigeration systems, pumps, forklift and fruit sorter have greatly enhanced winemaking options. Grapes are either estate grown or under long term contract with reliable growers.
