2019 Marlena Port
In honor of Mario and Lena Lanza, grandparents of brothers Rick, Ron, Larry, and Ken Lanza, we named this dessert wine “Marlena.” Mario and Lena were the first generation of the Lanza family to make wine in Suisun Valley.
This sweet dessert wine explodes with aromas of ripe blackberries, boysenberry, and plum. When you taste it, you will get flavors of almond, espresso, and chocolate. A smooth finish coats the palate with cocoa and raspberry. Overall, it’s multilayered, inviting wine that continues to unfold as you enjoy it. It’s terrific on its own or paired with spiced cookies, gingerbread, almond cakes, or orange-scented desserts. Another great option is to pour it on vanilla ice cream.
