Port wine is produced in Portugal’s Douro Valley, located in the northern part of the country. Most ports are red, although white and rosé versions exist. Port is often thought of as a dessert wine because it is so sweet
. The flavors depend on the grapes used, but commonly you can detect notes of blackberry, caramel, raspberry, cinnamon and chocolate sauce. The flavors also depend on the type of Port.
This wine should be served slightly below room temperature, and it pairs well with:
