Wine Expert Note:

Churchill's Reserve Ruby Port is a delightful fortified wine that showcases the rich flavors and aromas of the Douro region in Portugal. This particular port is classified as a Ruby Port, which means it is aged for a shorter period of time compared to other styles of port. On the nose, Churchill's Reserve Ruby Port offers enticing notes of ripe red fruits, such as cherries and plums, along with hints of dark chocolate and spice. These aromas are complemented by a touch of oak, adding complexity to the overall profile. The palate of this port is luscious and velvety, with a medium body and smooth tannins. The flavors mirror the aromas, with a dominant presence of red fruits and a subtle sweetness that is well-balanced by a refreshing acidity. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of fruit and spice. Overall, Churchill's Reserve Ruby Port is a fantastic choice for those seeking a classic and approachable port wine. It pairs wonderfully with rich desserts, such as chocolate cake or blue cheese, and can also be enjoyed on its own as a delightful after-dinner drink. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
