  4. Passadouro Ruby Reserva Port

Passadouro Ruby Reserva is foot-trodden and fermented in a traditional granite lagar. It matures for five years in 40-year-old Portuguese oak; this extended aging period results in an exceptionally complex Ruby Port.

Tasting Notes

A deep ruby red in color, this intensely aromatic Port is full-bodied with youthful freshness and beautiful fruit.

Food Pairing

Excellent with cheese, chocolate, or on its own as an aperitif or after-dinner drink.
