The color of this dessert wine from New York is fantastic. It?s like looking at a blood red rose, with a copper hue around its edges. It smells like port, with rich, dense, scents of overripe peach and tamarind. The flavor is smooth and definitely has peach notes, but the tamarind I smelled is really closer to rhubarb, with sweet strawberry also. These fruits swim in the glass like they are in raw sugarcane or molasses syrup.
