Oh my. Recently I’ve discovered I AM a fortified wine person. IF it’s good. Can we revive this as a trend in the next few years? Because there is caramel nut magic here. I remember discovering caramel popcorn as a kid. And how amazing it was and no matter how many mouthfuls I got it was good and complex and sugary but salty and complex and this wine is that without being overbearingly sweet like the popcorn. The finish finishes...then comes back overwhelmingly intoxicating in every sense of the word. In-flippin-sane.
