Times-Herald Record Raves About Warwick's Harlequin Port

Warwick Valley recently recieved a rave for their Harlequin Port from the Times-Herald Record. In an article entitled, "As weather cools, wines get bolder," on September 16, 2006, Lisa Ramirez wrote, "Jennifer Redmond of Enthusiastic Spirits in Rosendale also thinks of port when the weather turns cool, but she set her sights locally. She suggests Warwick Valley Winery's Winston's Harlequin Port ($14.99)."

"This port is made from 100 percent baco noir and is fortified with brandy also made at Warwick Valley Winery. The result is a ruby-style port that has aromas and flavors of ripe raspberries and dark cherries and a lingering finish of vanilla and caramel," she says. "It would go great with rich cheeses and nuts or dessert — I think of flourless chocolate cake when I drink it."

We couldn't agree more.
