Seghesio Port

This is one wine to get your hands on before everyone else catches on. A group of friends and I discovered this fine port while on a trip to wine country in California. When we go, we make it a point to visit several vineyards and try new places. This was our first visit to Seghesio, and I have to say it is one of the more delightful wine tasting experiences. We did a tasting flight downstairs, but were so charmed by the family matriarch (the daughter in law of the original founders who immigrated in the late 19th Century) that we went upstairs to their special tasting room. There the resident chef prepared a series of delightful amuse bouche from the family's own recipe book. The scallop pasta was particularly memorable.

But the wines! Ahh the wines. These wines aren't cheap by any means, but they are rapidly appearing on many of the finest restaurant lists, a sure sign that they will only go up in price. Tasting the port to finish off the wine flight was like tasting great wine for the first time. Complex, well balanced, a world unto itself.

So if you are up for impressing friends and grabbing a great wine before it heads into the stratosphere, grab a bottle of the Seghesio Port soon.

And in case you were wondering, I'm on no pay-per-post scheme here. No one is paying me a cent to write this. It's just my humble opinion.)

That's all there is!

I love port in the cooler weather! With a little cheese or after dinner chocolates, it is so civilized!

Thanks deborah. I love port year round. There is something about a good port that makes you slow down and savor. Life always seems to go too fast all those other hours of the day, so I appreciate any slow influence.
