Borges Ruby Port
Vinhos Borges is one of the best value producers in Portugal's Douro region, not just for still wines but for ports too. In a time when wine prices - particularly for European wine - are skyrocketing, that's a major plus! This is a ruby port, which means it will offer fruitier characteristics than a tawny port and is meant to be consumed younger due to more steel/concrete aging and less oak aging. This young style offers mature flavors of raisins and figs alongside candied cherries and raspberry jam, leading into balanced sweetness on the finish. It's an excellent wine to serve as an aperitif or with desserts, and you can even use it in cocktails and reduction sauces.
