The Forte 6 is an unconventional blend of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Tempranillo and Touriga Nacional. This combination leads to a very complex and mature flavor on the palate. In the Port style, this dessert wine is fortified with natural grape spirits. It is a pleasure to enjoy with dark chocolate desserts of all kinds, or even your favorite blue cheese.
True to our Spanish and Portuguese heritage, this fortified wine was crafted with a classic blend of Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional and Souzao - three of the most widely used grapes in Portugal to make Port wines. It has a distinctive flavor profile skillfully developed by our winemaker. Matured for 53 months and bottled in 2016.
