Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine Kit Limited Release - Winexpert Après
Hugely popular each year, this wine is bursting with rich, intense fruit flavors and aromas that have traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherry and plum, supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart with luscious liquid chocolate, beguiling with dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee and vanilla. Toasty hints of oak guide the way to a long, rich finish.
Excellent within three months, this wine will age gorgeously if you can keep any that long!

You wont be disappointed. I did rerack and so another round of claifier noting the instructions and it made it better
I have not made this new kit yet, however, I made it last year and it was a huge hit for port lovers! Hence I am making it again. Easy instructions to follow with superb results!
Made from the 2019 batch.
My wine finished out at 17.8% ABV and is a very smooth easy drinker. Not as sweet as I expected, from the description and being a dessert wine. That is fine with me, just more things it pairs with. It is a full bodied wine. Had it during the summer months with a smoked pork butt and ribs, OMG...was divine.
I am not a huge wine drinker, I prefer my homebrew beer. I am very glad I bought and made this wine. I would recommend it to anyone that is thinking of purchasing. I am trying to forget they are there so they can age a bit more. Plan to drink a bottle today with Thanksgiving dinner (2020) and this has been aging about 10 months.
Wine has subtle fruity notes of like a cherry, plum or slight fig. Delicious. Then there is a soft after taste of the chocolate. Nothing comes across too strong. It is a well balanced wine full of flavor. Your wine drinking friends will beg to take a bottle home with them.
If you like a dark red wine, port style, then you cant go wrong with this wine. I do recommend a second package of yeast to ensure full attenuation. There is a lot of sugar here to consume. Make sure you aerate really well in the beginning as well.
