FORTIFIED

PORT

CROFT RESERVE TAWNY PORT

DOP

TASTING NOTE: Aromas of fig, dried red berries, and

burnt sugar are bright and focused. The deep flavors

carry the sweetness well on the palate, offering

concentrated notes of roasted fig, caramelized apple

skin, and lightly toasted walnuts. Complex and

delicious. Excellent. Highly Recommended. Great

Value. Score:

SHERRY

ALVEAR CREAM SHERRY

DO Montilla-Moriles

TASTING NOTE: Alvear produces a non-vintage

Cream, which is essentially a sweeter style of Oloroso.

Its dark amber color is accompanied by sweet, nutty,

milkshake-like aromas, tremendous precision as well

as intensity, and a marvelous finish. Score:

SPECIALTY WINE

MONIACK MEAD

United Kingdom

(The Lyme BayWinery)

The word “honeymoon” is said to come from the

ancient custom of toasting the bride and groom with

goblets of mead (honey wine) and wishing them

virility and fertility for the length of one full moon

after the wedding. This delicious, popular mead has

a cult-like following worldwide – and seriously,

what’s not to love? Serve chilled as an aperitif or as

a dessert wine with fresh fruit or honey cake.
