Price: Around $25 at Becker Vineyards in Stonewall, TX
Notes: Some red berry flavors up front then lots of dried dark fruit along a long finish. Sweet enough to know you're drinking a port-style wine, but the sweetness compliments the fruit flavors rather than overpowering them. It's 19% ABV so be sure to watch your pours. At 25 bucks for a full 750ml, it's a pretty good value. We reduced some to make a sauce for grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream, and it worked as the perfect compliment for our dessert.
