I rarely do wine reviews but it’s not often that I taste something that really stands out. I was lucky enough to taste Brian Carter Cellars Opulento. It’s a blend of 90% Touriga Nacional and 10% Souzao from the Yakima Valley AVA. It’s a fortified port style red wine with a rich garnet color in the glass. It has raspberry and chocolate flavors with a hint of spice that coats your tongue as you sip it. There is a sweet finish which makes it a perfect substitute for dessert. This is the first fortified wine that Brian has made and he did not make a lot of so I would hurry if you are interested. How about a bottle for a stocking stuffer?
