Miles Wine Cellars Treasure

February 2, 2018

The Finger Lakes are known for making excellent dessert style wines, but usually with white grapes. One look at this port style bottle and you know that this is a different type of dessert wine. Miles Cellars delights any port lover with this ruby styled version made with Lemberger grapes. Cherries, cassis, coffee and chocolate predominate on the nose. The mouth is similar to the nose, with a viscous and smooth texture. One sip is not enough so its worth seeking out your own bottle to take the chill out of the house.
