Vineyard Notes
Terra d’Oro Non-Vintage Zinfandel Port is a fortified red dessert wine produced from Zinfandel grapes sourced from the rolling foothills of Amador County, a region known for creating elegant, rich and full-bodied Zinfandel. A combination of vintages of late harvested grapes creates a seductive history of our Port in one glass.
Winemaker Notes
Terra d’Oro Zinfandel Port is the last project during harvest, allowing the grapes’ sugar levels to rise and the acid levels to slowly fall, creating a sumptuous and sweet wine. After the Zinfandel grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, the must is inoculated and begins fermenting in stainless steel tanks. During fermentation, yeasts convert sugar to alcohol while extracting ripe juicy fruit flavor, tannin and color from the grape skins. Once the wine reaches a carefully chosen sugar level, the addition of un-aged grape brandy — a process known as fortification — is introduced. After fortification, the high alcohol levels stop fermentation and help extract even more flavor from the skins. The leftover residual sugar gives the wine its sweet edge. Using a traditional “Solera” style method of aging, the newest vintage is blended with several previous vintages. The Zinfandel Port is aged in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels creating a velvety, rich and polished dessert wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Terra d’Oro Zinfandel Port is the perfect wine to enjoy on its own and pairs well with dark chocolate and decadent Ganache. For a savory combination, try it with Stilton cheese and toasted walnuts.

My husband had a glass of this Port on our Anniversary trip and loved it. Tried finding it locally but no one carries it so ordering on line. He was truly impressed with the complexity of flavors, great end to a wonderful dinner.

A great Zinfandel Port. My wife and I had it at the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot (Walt Disney World) in Sept.-Oct 2016. Can't find it locally in Contra Costa County. Going to have to plan a drive to the winery. An absolutely excellent example of a California Zinfandel Port.

It's sunset in September on the soft Sierra slope. Reclining wooden chairs surround an early fire and the hairs along my forearms stand. The garden croft begins to blink with fireflies aloft and kids pursuing them through wafting airs of berry vines and orange groves. What shares such sweetness? --In the distance someone coughed...

...and startled me from reveries as sip by sip a gorgeous ruby slips around my narrow glass, my lips, my mouth--the sort of dreams we city people need. I tip and savor swirls of everything I've found that's sweet in life, in Tera D'Oro Port.

One of the best Ports I have had in the last 10 years! Excellent flavor both on the front end and the backside - it pairs so well with a fall evening on the back porch and even better with a good cigar.
