This Port-style wine, made very much as the Douro true Ports are, continues to win accolades. Prior awards include Gold Medals from the Dallas Morning News, Orange County Fair, San Francisco Chronicle and the San Diego National Wine Competition. And now, an Editor's Choice from Wine Enthusiast.
Our Port-style wine is called Starboard to indicate both its similarity to, its difference from, true Port. Get it? Port, Starboard, two sides of a boat. With all this talk of nautical terms one might be forgiven if inclined to say "My she's yar." (Hepburn quote from which movie? Anyone? Anyone?)*
But we digress...Wine Enthusiast called this Quady gem "One of the best California Port-style wines out there...tremendously rich and sweet in chocolate truffle and blackberry infused flavors, with near-perfect acidity and tannins for balance."
