1762 Port

The 2014 1762 gets its name from the year Charles Carter produced what would become the first internationally awarded American wine. It is an homage to Porto with a Virginian touch; it aged 18 months in Bourbon barrels from A. Smith Bowman distilleries in Fredericksburg. The wine has very dark, rich color and is full-bodied. 1762 smells of ripe red berries and dark chocolate with a hint of bourbon; it is an after-dinner sipping wine that pairs well with sharp cheeses or a cigar.
