Port o’ Missouri

Stone Hill, Missouri, Port 2004 The prunes and sweet Linzer torte stand out in the nose. In the mouth there is the alcohol and tannic edge of vintage Port from the Duoro as well as chocolate and vanilla. This was a big hit with chocolate covered raisins. The grape that makes this wine is Norton. The wine is aged in French and US oak and the RS is about 8%. P&B in Hermann 18.8% $19.99 for a 500ml bottle at the winery Stone Hill

    If you like Stone Hill Winery’s Norton, you should check out St. James Winery Dessert Norton. Its a much sweeter Norton blend, and possibly my favorite Missouri wine. Here’s a link, http://www.stjameswinery.com/shop/wine/dessert/norton-dessert-wine.html

    I have to try that one as well. I don’t have a bottle here in California but perhaps when I’m in Missouri in May. RJ
