What a pleasant surprise awaits you here: It's delectable, decadent and downright delicious. Fabulous mango, lime, and peach aromas parade upward in advance of vivid nectarine and pink grapefruit flavors. This charmer, which features perfect vitality and acidity, is almost too easy to drink and enjoy.
For an after-dinner sipper, the last drink of the night, try this sweetly soft, liqueury dessert wine. The intense flavors are of cassis, anisette, Kahlua and caramel. There’s something sexy and sensual about the pure velvet mouthfeel.
With nearly 20% residual sugar, this wine is enormously sweet in honey and black cherry flavors, balanced by brilliant acidity. It’s delicious and savory and so easy to like. For something unusual, try with a runny cheese, like a soft Gorgonzola.
Dark red in color and crisp in citrusy acidity, this dessert wine has very sweet flavors of black cherry marmalade, Dr. Pepper cola, milk chocolate, tangerine and savory spices. You can drink it at room temperature or with a chill.
A beautiful dessert wine that should influence consumers to rediscover the category. Almost as dark as a red wine, it’s soft in texture and extraordinarily sweet, with intense essence of tangerine and raspberry flavors. Hard to exaggerate the deliciousness factor. Good value in a full 750-milliliter bottle.
“Elysium” in Greek mythology is the afterlife of perfect bliss, and it’s not hard to imagine this as its house pour. It is sweet—but not shockingly so—with blackberry, orange, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and a richly smooth mouthfeel. If you’re treating yourself to something chocolaty, especially if it has oranges or strawberries, this will be a seductive companion.
Labeled off dry but with little or no sweetness, this is a unique effort, a rosé style with unusual length and focus. Chill this wine and drink it as an apéritif. It is most unusual—dusty, musky, and concentrated, with a fine finish that resonates with a Grand Marnier note.
