Quady Winery Starboard Vintage 2006

A vinage 'Port' style wine from legendary Californian dessert wine specialist Andrew Quady

Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Now Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. In 1975 Quady's first port-like wine was made from Amador County Zinfandel. Now it is made from traditional Portuguese varietals such as Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao.

Tasting Notes

A Port style blend of Tinta Cao 57%, Touriga Nacional 29%, Tinta Roriz 6%, Tinta Amarela 5% and Tinta Barroca 3% this is an opaque, garnet brick red in colour, and shows lively aromas of spiced prunes and cherries, combined with notes of vanilla bean and cola. Smooth and velvety on the palate with silky tannins, the complex flavours of dried fruit, leather, raisins, nuts and beautifully integrated oak, lead to an everlasting finish.
